About this image
This view appears to have been taken looking east on a path through woodland alongside Hathersage Road (the A625) at Blacka Moor. The young man is Frank Brindley, the eldest son of the photographer.
F H Brindley titled the picture 'First Snow of Winter. Snap on Burbage Moors, Hathersage, Derbyshire' and 'Blacka Moor Nov 7/44 Derbyshire.' The original print is further annotated 'Passed by Censor, No 370401. Not to be used before Monday 13/11/44.'
The photographer's geography was not entirely accurate as Blacka Moor is some way to the south of Burbage Moor and he was actually standing in what was then the West Riding of Yorkshire rather than Derbyshire, although the county boundary is only a short distance to the rear. Hathersage, on the other hand, is about four miles away.
This location seems to have been a F H Brindley favourite for photographing snow - see also PTPD300119 (1937) and PTPD300120 (1943).
