This triptych was commissioned to celebrate the long history of immigrants arriving into Bradford from numerous locations over the last 300 years. With them they brought their skills and traditions. The images are carved on paving slabs from the city streets. The first shows footprints caught in time. The second lists the many countries of origin and when they arrived into the city. The third slab has ‘tintype’ photo plates commonly used at the end of the 19th Century for passports. They are indented into the surface, these are some of the earliest types of photographs and record the faces of immigrants from about 1890.
