I have just bought another batch of old negatives dating back to the 1940s and 50s. All I know is that many of the photographs were taken in and around the Walkley district of Sheffield - an area I know all too well as I lived there myself for many years and my son lives there now. This first scan can't be Walkley - the hills of Walkley would make any canal and engineering impossibility. It could be the South Yorkshire Navigation, but if it is I don't recognise the stretch which appears to be far too rural. Wherever it is, it is a fine old image and a splendid start to my exploration of the Walkley Hoard.
