St Helens, Lancashire, 1969.

A red-brick Victorian church, rainy flagstone pavements, gas lighting, long terraces of slate-roofed houses, stone setts (popularly but incorrectly called "cobbles") and, dimly visible through the murk, a corner shop. A perfect Lancashire industrial townscape, complete and intact when this picture was taken on 12th December 1969.
