Market Stalls, Halifax 1981

This new image is based on a photograph I took forty years ago in Halifax. It was taken in the Piece Hall when that fine building was going through one of its early transitions from redundant wholesale marketplace to open-air retail market. It was busy and purposeful, but the location was of secondary importance: the open space was merely a suitable location for a few market stalls. Forty years on, and it is the location that takes pride of place, the building that is the star of the show.
