Bottle of Guinness in Godley Cuttings, Halifax in 1966


This is one of my favourite photos of this period and one which can be dated with some accuracy. If you enlarge the poster at the bottom left of the shot it is one of those Guinness commemorative posters which reads : "Battle of Hastings 1066, Bottle of Guinness 1966". So there you have it : Godley Cuttings, Halifax, 1966 by Alan Burnett.

Fantastic to see all the old chimneys in the enlarged view; synonymous with the industrial north. Nice one.

What an interesting photo. There is a feeling about it I can't quite place. Suffice it to say, this fills my eyes, and something mysterious touches my heart.

This picture is a beauty. I wanted to walk along that road and see what was around the corner.

Alan,
This is great! I looks like an Audrey Hepburn film to me. I missed the 60s and I've only begun to understand them through film.
