Bedford Street Liverpool 1, 1972

 

There used to be a kind of ‘village’ atmosphere in this area of inner city Liverpool, but much of the property was either in a bad state of repair and was being demolished, or had been bought by the University and was being restored for student accommodation. The local population was being re-housed in outlying districts of the city, and the once tight-knit community was being destroyed.

We began the story by interviewing one of the local shopkeepers, who suggested other people who should be interviewed, who in their turn suggested others and so on. The photographs were exhibited with panels of text by David Porter, who conducted the interviews.

Recently, the photographs were featured in the Liverpool Echo. To read the article, click here.
