3. ELLAND LANE, ELLAND, YORKSHIRE
Scanned 35mm Black & White Negative (c1984)

In the distance, adjacent to the parked car, you can just make out a the hanging pub sign of what is now "The Drop Inn", but, when I took this photo, would have still officially have been "The Oddfellows", although, even then, it was known to most folks as "The Drop"

1678 : Climbing Terraces


WHITEHOUSE STREET, WALKLEY, SHEFFIELD
A photograph taken in the mid 1980s, a time when the Walkley district of Sheffield was undergoing change. The terraces still climb the hills, but there is a vibrancy about the area these days that was not obvious thirty years ago.

UNDER THE PIER, CLEETHORPES (c.1984) : I like the contrast between the dark and the light, the straight and the wavy, the nearly new and the almost old. I like Cleethorpes.
