This is an excellent shot beautifully composed, Peter! Thank you for sharing these old photos with us! Greetings, Anne
This is a scan from a slide taken by my late uncle. What is amazing is that he lost his right arm during the war and could still hold the camera steady to take photos. He was also a good snooker (Pool) player, and made light of his disability.
Best Wishes Peter
Here is the view from the rear of Aston Hall that you visited a few weeks ago.
Again here can be seen the smog that used to come down over the city of Birmingham in those days. The introduction of “smokeless zones” started to make a difference and nowadays we never get the dense smogs. I suppose it would be true of the rest of industrial Europe.
Hi Peter a beautyfull misty atmosphere and a "high quality scan".
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
This picture was taken as a slide by my late uncle, and I am pleased with the scans have come out. The mist is probably an industrial smog that used to descend over Birmingham at that time, and I think he took this picture from the rear of the Hall somewhat later in the day
Have a great Xmas and a prosperous New Year, I will make a point of looking at your latest pictures over the Xmas period!
Best wishes, Peter
Not a bad scan Peter, where are those huge conifers or something behind that wall?....were they still at early stages?
Yes Peter, bit uncanny that I took photo from the same spot. It was unintensional, as I was trying out my new camera. Those chimeneys really confuse me now..three at the back are untouched..Manoo
Wonderfully composed image.
Thank you Bogdan.
This is actually a scan taken form a slide, the picture take in the 1960s by my late uncle. The haze is due to the smog we used to get around the industrialised city at that time.
Best wishes Peter
