Gelatine silver print entitled ''I'll Be Seeing You', Esholt Sewage Works, Bradford' by Ian Beesley. Produced for the commission `Through the Mill:, The Story of Yorkshire Wool in Photographs'.1985-1987'.

The recession of 1978-80 and the fall in the consumption of raw wool led to the closure of the Esholt sewage plant. A redundant but optimistic workforce looks forward to better days.
