All that chat about printing on the blog yesterday........ obviously got Matt thinking in terms of the old black and white prints of the past........... so he sent me a few scans of old prints.......... so here is a picture from way back........ this relies not on photoshop but on traditional B&W darkroom printing........... mind you it appears half the time we have just scanned the stuff lying about......... not the optimal final print.......... but hey.... it takes you back to see some of the old stuff........ takes me back to 'Thatcher's Britain' mass unemployment and poverty. Deprivation for many including children living in the poorest areas like this area called Easterhouse in Glasgow.......... I remember this image was used on a front page of a newspaper at the time with the headline: ' Crucified in Easterhouse'.............
