a butcher, a baker, a candle maker

I have been selected to deliver round 2 of the Wood Street Inside Out Moving Image commission.  I’ve spent a few initial days there researching, and doing lots of walking.  Here’s a selection of initial images from these walks:
Out of over 200 businesses on the street, only four of those are high street chains (Percy Ingles, Coral, Travis Perkins and Co-Operative foods and funeralcare)
There happens to be “A Butcher, a Baker, a Candle Maker” so will use this phrase as my working title.
More on this soon.
