Hospital buys my photos

Bradford Royal Infirmary has bought 12 of my photos of local views. They will be hung in the haematology ward which is being re-decorated. Most of the views – even the waterfalls – are from Bradford. Only three are from surrounding areas.

The first two views are of Bradford City Park, featuring City Hall and Bradford’s iconic mirror pool, opened in March last year.

The next two views are of Saltaire in North Bradford. Salts Mill, and the village of Saltaire, were built by Sir Titus Salt in the 19th Century and named after him.  Saltaire is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Besides showing the mills, the first view shows the Leeds-Liverpool canal and the second shows the nearby River Aire.

The next two views are from just outside Bradford, in ‘Bronte Country’.  Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, authors of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and other works.

The final view is of a landmark well known to most in West Yorkshire, some 10 miles away from Bradford.

  1. Well done! That’s great. I live in the heritage site Saltaire and it’s amazing to see images of my little hub doing so well. Sometimes I forget about how nice it is. The same goes for the city park, it has brightened up Bradford a lot.
