Agriculture, Industry and Commerce


This photograph was taken at Dean Clough, Halifax, thirty or so years ago. A few decades earlier it was one of the largest working mill complexes in the country and the home of one of the biggest carpet manufacturers in the UK. A few decades later it had been converted to offices for insurances companies, banks and the like. My picture captured it during its transition when it provided good grazing for a horse or two.

  1. Quite a mix of 'ages' of architectue in a relatively small area. Just shows how places grow up as a 'mish-mash'.

  2. I expect to see animals grazing among the ruins of Detroit, like this, soon.

  3. Mill chimneys in West Yorkshire always make it easy to compose photographs using the rule of thirds. Looking at this photograph inspired me to go back to some of my photos to see if I could find one with a chimney when the rule of thirds wasn't followed. Needless to say I failed.
