The Hidden Landmark of Halifax?

This sounds really sad, but there is a very famous image of Halifax, taken by Bill Brandt entitled The Snickert, Halifax, 1937. For those who haven’t seen it, it is well work seeing Bill’s image. And taken long before we had even thought of digital.

I would really like to know if this place still exists and the location in Halifax, so we might pay it a visit. I have looked on the web, but can’t find out much. Can anyone help?
Tnanks,
Richard.

It's still there. It's behind Dean Clough Mill.

Cheers, Hellbelly, that's great. I will certainly make the effort to find it. And also the website where the info is on looks very handy too. Time to put my own spin on the image.
