In the late 1960s Dusty Deste set off for northern England to record the buildings, people and landscapes associated with the industries of East Lancashire and West Yorkshire before they were lost. The images within this group focus particularly on areas associated with the declining cotton and woollen industries. Also included are scenes of urban decay, post-war regeneration and rural life. The series contains 767 predominantly black & white negatives of which 725 have been digitized and catalogued. The remainder are mainly duplicates along with a small number of poor quality views.
