    Default Park Hill Road, c1910

    This shot of Park Hill Road is by the same amateur photographer who took the photograph of Beresford Road posted last week. The focus of the image appears to be the shop of Ann Young, confectioner and wholesaler of crumpets and muffins, at 64 Park Hill Road, with a young, delivery boy in the doorway. [...]

    I don't think the focus on the shop comes into it,Colin...otherwise the photographer would clearly included the shop.

    Parkhill road was middle & upper class area and the housing was more advanced in terms of quality of life ie sanitry,drainage,running water in the home ect.

    I agree with GeorgePorgie that the shop does not appear to be the focus of this picture, unless the photograph has been cropped. The delivery boy and shop doorway make for an interesting peripheral detail, but the focus of the photograph would appear to be more the row of houses and the people standing in the street.

    All the best

    Hi Chris,
    I think the angle of view is interesting - not taking in the whole sweep of the street. I think you will get a better 'picture' with the next two photos I post. I rarely crop photos - usually only if there is damage to the edges. I try to give the photographer's view without my interpretation.
