Talking Picture no. 12: Mrs Byford—Daniel Meadows

March 1974, Stratford-upon-Avon, from the Free Photographic Omnibus. Mrs Byford and her friend Jean, are on their way to the cemetery to put flowers on the graves of loved-ones.

As you might know, the photographic department, archive and accessibility of that department of the Library of Birmingham is in danger. Proposed cuts in funding threaten to destroy what is of national and international significance. One of the most important photographic collections in the UK. Doing this, could potentially help prevent the disaster from happening.
