Early last summer I had been taking photographs in Sheffield's once industrially active Neepsend district, and creating mono-print studies of Hill and Adamson's photographs of working class citizens of the 19th century.* The products of these pursuits seemed to turn out well and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to present them in a book showing my interest in England's industrial roots in the 1800s, as well as the people who inhabited that world.

For those of you interested in book-binding, I made a wraparound hardcover portfolio (case binding) with an inner folder insert. The paper folder attached inside served to hold together a selection of the photographs from my walk in Neepsend and a small single-signature bound booklet of my mono-prints.
