The Brighouse Skyline

Oh you can keep your Rio de Janeiro with its Corcovada Peak, you can forget your sandy Dubai and its boastful Burj Khalifa, you can even pickle your New York City along with its Empire States: I always say that if you want a truly memorable skyline, come to Brighouse.

The Sugden’s Flour Mill, the Leaning Chimney of Bank Street, the Mill Royd State Apartments – the whole scene takes your breath away.

I took the photograph fifty years ago. I added a bit of muddy colour last night. The mill chimneys might have gone, but much of the natural beauty remains.
