its raining again

A miserable wet 1970 winters day in a northern town. The Victorians made the Industry but they also provided the park.

On a grey day you noticed the industry more than the park. Of course the chimneys are now gone and the park is in a more natural setting. Certainly something gained; but also something lost.

The images are part of a sequence I took on my walk home from school through Victoria Park in St.Helens, no exif data when shooting film but I would date these images between 1975 and 1978. Zenith E slr camera, 58mm lens FP4 film.
