I have had a keen interest in photography since childhood. I am adding copies of my various political photographs to Flickr (link below). Most of these photographs were pre-digital, made using 35mm film, and the negatives are now safely housed in the archive of the People’s History Museum in Manchester. ( http://www.phm.org.uk )

There are around 400 images of campaigning by disabled people, from 1920 to 2007. These are organised as a collection of albums, each album for a named event. These images can be shared for non-commercial use. Please feel free to browse.
