A photograph taken back in nineteen seventy something of the view over Halifax from Southowram Bank. Looking back at the photograph from the perspective of forty years I realise that it encompasses a career history of the Burnett family. At one time I worked at the carpet mill in the foreground of the picture. My father spent much of his working life at the toffee mill complex at the centre of the picture, And my wife spent years working at the hospital which, if you scraped away the mist, you would be able to see in the background of the photograph. A family career - carpets, caramels and casualties.
