Disabled people’s campaign photographs are going to the Labour History Archive

My collection of film negatives and prints of photographs taken during the campaigns by disabled people for equality from 1992 onwards is being taken into the archive at the People’s History Museum in Manchester.

This record of social history, still relevant and contested, will be available to researchers and activists alike. Digital copies are already available on Flickr at – https://www.flickr.com/photos/125059036@N08/

The archive will also house a collection of prints from the group, Manchester Disabled Athletes, MDA which I have been holding for safe keeping.

Their address is – Labour History Archive and Study Centre, People’s History Museum, Left Bank, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3ER

The archive is open 10.00 to 17.00 each weekday, with a break for lunch 12.30 to 13.30.
