St marys church from the penthouse

I came across a handful of 35mm slides buried in a box in my garage. So I scraped off all the dead insects and dusted them off and scanned them. Below is a brief history of their creation.

My father was a cutler and during the 70s he used to work in a wooden hut on top of a building (true). The hut was a huge garden shed approx 20ft x 20ft and full of machinery and work benches. Because of its position and good views it was known as ‘The Penthouse’. The building has now gone ( student accommodation now ). It used to be next door down from TC Harrisons workshops on Boston Street with the business name Nowlin & Sons who specialised in surgical instruments. I was only a ‘whippersnapper’ back then and purchased my first ‘real’ camera, a 35mm Praktica Nova 1b which I bought from Ron Harrison when he had his original little shop. I’m sure I probably took hundreds of pictures from high up in the penthouse; unfortunately these are the only survivors.
