Grease Monkey




Adjusting the steam engine at Ellandroad Cotton Mill, taken in Rochdale, Lancashire. the Black and white Photograph really enhances the toil and texture of the man against the machine.

I do not normally do People Photography but this photograph remains my favourite image of a “Lanky Man” going about his work in the Cotton Mill.

The Mill is open to visitors to Lancashire (and photographers) steaming on the first Sunday of every month. Please visit and help support Lancashire’s Heritage for future generations.
