Cafe Royal Saltley 1978
I’ve found a small number of these ‘zines published by Cafe Royal Books in 2019. They are now sold out at CRB so this may be the last chance to get a copy.
In 1977 the Saltley Community Development Project CDP was planning their final reports and asked me if I wanted to design and produce them. This was the impetus for me to set up an agency called Sidelines. I shot the images in this book for use in the the reports.
Saltley remains a vibrant community centred on Alum Rock Road on or near where these images were taken. The community is still made up of many people from the Mirpur region of Azad Kashmir in Pakistan many of whom were displaced by the building of the Mangla Dam in the area.
