About This Item

Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, Luton, etc.: s.n. [but from the Hemel Press Archive], 1970. Unbound. Very good. Dates: 1970s (various dates, but 1970-1975). Each photograph preserved in a Mylar L-sleeve; in a fine protective case. Sizes vary (generally: 12" x 9"). Extraordinary Archive of English protest photos from the angry first half decade of the 1970s, providing high quality images of demonstrations, marches and protests on subjects local to Hertfordshire, north of London, and beyond. The photographs are large format black and white -- about 27 x 21 cm -- silver gelatin prints with details relating the location, participation and sometimes photographer to the verso. Dating from 1970-1975, the demonstrators are seen protesting against everything from the Vietnam War and Apartheid in South Africa, to road crossings and factory closures in Hertfordshire. Mostly landscape in format, the images are redolent of their era with evocative details of clothing and fashion with many images of home-made signs espousing the myriad causes. Some of the most dramatic images include a confrontation between police and anti-apartheid campaigners in Trafalgar Square, October 1970 with other photographs picturing 'Salvage Luton', builders demanding minimum wage, a campaign for nursery education, against Russian occupation of Ukraine (1972), the march of the Bangladesh Action Committee march, a 'Boycott the Circus' demonstration and 'Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry' etc.
