Firstly, thanks to all who voted, commented, (or did neither), on yesterday's image.
This very old shot was taken at Wetherby, when shortly after the river burst it's banks, it then froze (then snowed), producing a huge area of ice which lots of people congregated on and were ice skating, etc, giving almost a Dickensian feel.
The image was originally shot as a colour transparency.
I then produced a 7x5 inch negative of it on lith film, which only records black or clear film to give a very high contrast negative, then printed onto normal mono paper. (Of course, these days I could do all this with a few clicks of the mouse).
This is a scan of the print.
Thanks for looking,
