Halifax : Hope And Hunger - Then And Now

A recently re-scanned strip of six 35mm black and white negatives I must have originally shot back in the 1970s. It is the area just south of Halifax town centre around Hope Hall Street, Union Street and the splendidly named Hunger Hill. It is an area I still wander around today, and I have just discovered a shot I took last year (below) which is almost identical to the one in the picture above. Whilst the sky has now got a touch of blue and the cars are more modern - little else changes - either in Back Hope Street or my photography.


  1. What slide/negative scanner do you use. They turn out well, and I need to find one.
