It is interesting to try and project yourself forwards by twenty years and ask the question "which will be the most evocative picture of this current moment in time?". It could just be this picture of the carpet : a carpet which is already long past its sell-by date and due to vanish in the coming months.

This is one of those shots which appears very different on the screen to what it did in the viewfinder. The sun this morning was strong and I headed for the moors above Marsden. This is looking down from the Rochdale Road to one of the many reservoirs on the Marsden Moor Estate.

Jump forward ten or fifteen years. This will have been the beginning of the 1980s in Sheffield where we were living at the time. Like the Power Station in the previous photo, I think most of the flats in this shot have now gone for ever.

Just above the old house is this new office block. Like most of the offices in the "business park" it belongs to a firm of builders. Somehow it looks better in black and white.

The interesting question is, of course, what did the Assistant Field Secretary think the building would be in 100 years time? I doubt if he thought it would be a children's indoor play area. The carved stone is on one of the old chapels in Bethel Street, Brighouse. The chapel opposite has been converted into a pub.
