The photograph shows young members of the Bradford Bandits BMX Club taking part in a competition to raise funds for a local cancer charity. Bradford’s historic industrial skyline – the city rose to prominence during the 19th century as an international centre of textile manufacture, becoming known as the “wool capital of the world”  – can be seen in the distance. With Lister Mills, at one point the largest silk factory in the world, dominating the backdrop.
