Dunno where Darren drags up these images from, great stuff. Esp when you realise what a pita it was to get photos developed in those days and industrial stuff must have been low in the list of priorities for camera owners.

Agree 100% - amazing images - thank you Darren.

There's a fascination in the past that not everyone shares, but many do, and it grows with aging. It seems to me that things change with such rapidity, that once familar places are eradicated, it is like part of your own life is ripped from existence in the name of so called progress. Seeing such images are almost like small parts of a former life has, for a while, been rediscovered - these things were - and here is the proof. Memories, and in a way - life - becomes re-kindled. Many thanks.

Those are terrific photos Darren - are they yours? Di and I first became interested in Pocock some 20 odd years ago, and Di has delved into his history on and off since then. She’s now half way through a book about him due for publication in the Autumn, and if anyone has any information relating to the Pocock family in any way she would like to hear.
