This poster shows Beesley's monochrome shot of Glynn Terrace, Bradford. Beesley recalls taking the shot thus:
“When I graduated from college in 1977 I received a Kodak Scholarship for Social Documentation. I headed home to Bradford to photograph the North and the industries that made it.
I couldn’t afford a car so used to walk from my home in Eccleshill around the streets and across the city looking for subjects to photograph. I shot in black and white not for any aesthetic reasons – that’s simply all I could afford - but I’ve since grown rather fond of monochrome.
Street corners were always good locations where people would gather or children would play. Here I came across some kids playing marbles whilst two ladies chat across the street.”
