I found this cradle in the attic of the old mill, I had to tread carefully as the wooden steps moved under me on the way up, slightly rotten and the floor might have been too so I was holding onto a beam to try and take some weight off my feet with every step as I moved around in that attic.

(The old woollen mill was abandoned by workers in 1961 who seemed to have just gone without clearing anything out)

All three excellent mono shots - I wonder who he was ? - and why was his picture abandoned? - if only he could tell us.
The natural light works very well here - especially on the basket in v3

What were the cradles used for I wonder. Lovely sprinkle of old dirt and dust on the photo.

Thanks for the comments!

I have no idea what that cradle was used for but it was a bit odd as it almost looked like a cradle for a baby?

It's a bit odd why a single photograph was left I must admit, but why is a mystery.

Good to see you are looking for the smaller pics' in the mill !!
Good one here.
(but it is just my personal liking that I think colour works better for ''grot'' !!)
