The little minx in the background of Kenís photo was very insistent that I take one of her.  I think she wanted to show off her red knickers. Not a photo I would care to take today.

Looking down Dovecot to the Burgh Hall tower and the gable end of the Stag building, both still there though most of the Old Shaws has of course been redeveloped.

After the Ďshootí I did a little gentle UrbEx-ing long before such a thing had been invented, and the following were the results. I donít have an exact location for any of them, just places in the Old Shaws where demolition was imminent.











I've been kindly informed by a lady who still lives in the 'Shaws that the little girl on the left is her mother, Catherine O'Hare, who lived at 23 Pleasance Lane, the door to which is in the picture.

Evening in Pleasance St. This was pushing the film to, or a bit beyond, its limits.

The Horse Shoe in Drury St. A long exposure, with the camera stood on a table, which is why the barman is ghostly.

A frosty Sunday morning at the Barras, Kent St I think, in December 1963. A great time of year to be a stallholder, wifies queuing up to throw money at you, loads of stock still to be opened.
