Born in Northampton but brought up in Dewsbury since he was 7 years old, Malcolm East has recorded his memories of Dewsbury in a series of works entitled; 'When I Was A Lad'.

Despite starting a job in a commercial art studio the money was down the pit and he left very quickly to work at Thornhill Colliery

His earlier work included 'Twenty Four Hours down the Mine' about his experiences at Thornhill Colliery followed by 'Changing the Face of British Rail' when he worked for BICC on contract to British Rail.
