Virtually unseen for 40 years, these black and white photographs by Tricia Porter paint a vivid picture of everyday life in Toxteth/Liverpool 8 and the surrounding area at a time when it was undergoing significant development and the break up of its tight knit communities.

About

Taken together, the series Bedford Street, Liverpool 8 (1972) and Some Liverpool Kids (1974) offer an affectionate portrait of this multicultural area and its people, from children playing on Windsor Street to families at home and drinkers in the pubs. It was, says the artist, 'an attempt to make a photo documentary which would be a positive and meaningful statement about my neighbours who had all too often been treated as statistical fodder and sociological phenomena.'

The exhibition is complemented by an illustrated publication.
