This is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Count Chimneys.
Over Christmas I started making digital versions of the slides in my archives. I had previously digitised around 1,500 key slides but there are about 15,000 in my archives. I am currently about halfway through the process.
So a selection of English chimneys photographed in the 1980s from my archives.
An interesting old stone chimney on the corner of Eastgate Street and Bridge Street in the historic centre of Chester, Cheshire.
A soon to be demolished chimney on a former small pox hospital north of London.
Chimneys on some historic buildings on The Square, Nantwich, Cheshire.
Some chimneys in north London during a severe hailstorm. The “speckled” appearance of the storm clouds is falling hail.
