Shut Shop III - Black and White Photography
Black and white photographs of shops that are up for let. These photographs are taken in the town of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, England. The town at one time was filled with very smart looking shoppers with matching outfits, tea rooms bursting with ladies that did afternoon tea and happy shopkeepers with money tills bursting at the drawers. Now Dewsbury has more shops to let than there are open, this might be a reflection on the whole of towns in and around England but I have fond memories of working in Dewsbuy in its heyday and I secretly live in hope that one day the shops will burst to life once again.
