Sooty Stone And Net Curtains

This is one of my photographs from the late 1960s which I took from Lower Kirkgate in Halifax, just below the then Parish Church (now, Halifax Minster). Fifty plus years later, the railway viaduct has gone, and the same is true of the pub with the net curtains that used to nestle under the railway bridge for shelter. The carpet mill is now a Matalan car park and the scarred slopes of Beacon Hill are now covered with trees. The new Halifax is more colourful and diverse than the old Halifax, but it is this 1960s grey version that pervades most of my memories.
