    Default High Park Street



    This photograph was taken during the long cold winter of 1982 at the corner of Prince's Avenue and High Park Street.
    The tall building in the centre is the Empress pub. Ringo Starr was born round the corner in 1940 and lived in Madryn Street and Admiral Grove until moving to London with the Beatles. On the cover of his first solo album, Sentimental Journey (1970), he is pictured standing outside his old local, the Empress.
    The youth in the foreground is walking upon the site of Pimhill Street, which had been demolished shortly before the photograph was taken. The site has since been covered by new housing.

    Brilliant picture.
    I wish there were more of that area.

    I've got hundreds of the things. Watch this space..
    Mind you, I've now been booted out of my darkroom due to the needs of growing teenagers so am on the hunt for a Mac-friendly 35mm/120 scanner to digitise the archive. Anyone got one for sale?

    that's the kind of image I aspire to.
