Brilliant. It seems as if time has stood still. I love those rows of lamps on the wall too. I supposed they count them out and count them back in.

The texture and detailed sheen on the Davey lamp is superb Danny, a marvellous monochrome conversion.

This is brilliant Danny - composition, focal length, eye contact all working together. Plus a wealth of history that once he's gone will exist in books and museum displays only.
