Timeless, in fact the only thing that 'gives it away in terms of time is the list of phone numbers on the shop. I bet there's more street clutter these days though.
I'd crop from the left to remove the post for a cleaner look, that's all.

Ah, can tell straight away this is film. And one of my faves too. And being a bag expert, I'd recognise the era of the lady's shopper anytime. Smile

Ah yes. Your bedroom window top left, as I recall?
I don't have any pictures of the house where I grew up. It might look a bit odd to go and take one now...

It is interesting to see images taken on film - we had a street photographer at club this week who still uses film - a lot of folk say it was best for mono.

I was told a winter image should feel cold, and this looks & feels cold.
cheers Phil.

I think it was a good year - maybe even better if you were ten years older than I was!

Part of the point of the picture, for those who know Leek now, was the buildings on the left. They made the road - which before things like the M62, was a major way from East to West through Staffordshire - too narrow for lorries to pass each other. Therefore, the lorry heading down the hill past the church had to stop and wait while the lorry coming up ground its way to the top. And then, as it accelerated away down the hill the other side, less than a hundred yards off to the right, the lorry that had stopped crawled off in low gear.

It made having a bedroom with two windows facing the road quite interesting - Moira's right, and the upper window visible on the building set back behind Bill the Bandit's shop was the one nearer my bed.

What a wonderful 'blast from the past'. Photography in that era held challenges that we all seem to have forgotten.
