[55 vintage photos] Archive of protest photos from the angry first half decade of the 1970s providing high quality images of demonstrations, marches and protests on subjects local to Hertfordshire, north of London, and the wider world. The photographs are large format - about 27x21cm - silver gelatin prints with details relating the location, participation and sometimes photographer to the verso. Dating from 1970-1975 the demonstrators are seen protesting against everything from the Vietnam war and apartheid in South Africa to road crossings and factory closures in Hertfordshire. Mostly landscape in format the images are redolent of their era with evocative details of clothing and fashion with many images of home-made signs espousing the myriad causes. Some of the most dramatic images include a confrontation between police and anti-apartheid campaigners in Trafalgar Square, October 1970 with other photogaphs picturing 'Salvage Luton', builders demanding minimum wage, a campaign for nursery education, against Russian occupation of Ukraine (1972), the march of the Bangladesh Action Committee march, a 'Boycott the Circus' demonstration and 'Women's Campaign for Soviet Jewry' etc.
