1439 : A Town At A Crossroads
Halifax From Beacon Hill, Alan Burnett (1971) Halifax in the early 1970s - a town at a crossroads. The remnants of the old North Bridge Station still remain whilst the new flyover casts a shadow over the area. High rise flats do battle with Victorian church...

COMMERCIAL BREAK : Watney, What, No!
This advert is taken from a June 1954 edition of that very best of British magazines - Picture Post. It was a time when adverts were inclined to be plain and simple - both in their design and in their content. And although I can't remember ever having drunk...

1442 : Like Pigs In Clover
I wasn't even aware that pigs were particularly fond of clover. In my experience they would prefer a muddy, straw-covered, warm sty any day of the week.

1641 : Droning On About Halifax
These days if you want an aerial view of your locality you buy yourself one of those neat little drones and launch it skywards. You might well bring down a few passing aeroplanes in the process, but you will probably get some decent shots. Forty-five years ...

1440 : Springtime In Fixby

POSTCARDS FROM HOME : A Mystery Wrapped Up In An Enigmatic PC
Another of those lovely old postcards that seem to inhabit a hinterland somewhere between a photograph and a pen and ink drawing. Despite the rather crude hand colouring, the scene is instantly recognisable to anyone who is familiar with Halifax 110 years l...

Introduction
One time lecturer, writer on European Affairs and bus conductor, Alan Burnett now divides his time between walking the dog and a little harmless blogging. His News From Nowhere Blog has been running since 2006 and acts as a showcase for his ranting and writing and his photographs old and new.
