Picture Post 1125 : Taking A Stroll Down Charles Street


This is a photograph of Charles Street in Elland taken back in the 1980s. Most of the buildings are still there today, but the cars are different and the cigarette vending machines have long gone. Scanning my old negatives is like taking a stroll through history.

  2. The black and white shows tremendous shadow. Funny how pictures don't have to be very old before huge changes are noticed.

  6. I like the scene at the very end of the street. Factory smoke I am assuming.
