Exhibition of life in Liverpool during 60’s and 70’s

Looking back at the history of a city can be fascinating, with Car Hire Liverpool Airport staff wanting to get reports on the latest collection of pictures of Liverpool life.

Photographs taken of families living in the slums of Liverpool in the 1960’s and 70’s have been unveiled as part of the ‘Make Life Worth Living’ collection, which has opened recently at the Science Museum in London with the exhibition running until January 18, 2015.

The amazing photos were taken between 1969-1971, show a big difference between the city most will know today and a city seemingly below the poverty line. Liverpool became an unemployment ‘black spot’ in the 1970s, leaving families ravaged by poverty around the city.

Commissioned by homeless charity Shelter in 1968, photographer Nick Hedges captured powerful and moving images of a Britain far from the one we know today, less than 50 years later. The hard-hitting images are now on exhibit for the first time, after the expiry of a 40 year restriction to protect the subjects’ anonymity. 100 black and white photographs are displayed alongside notes from Hedges’ diary of his experiences.
