Silver gelatin contact print taken by an unknown photographer for the Daily Herald in Newcastle in 1964, showing twelve views of high-rise blocks of flats together with older terraced houses and shops. Article on reverse reads 'Next week, Britain's towns and villages will be electing their councils. But many of the 36 million people asked to vote will not be doing so. Does it matter? they can ask. Can local councils make any real difference to our lives? I found the answer to those questions in Necastle-upon-Tyne... Whille the rest of the country talks about the Buchannan Report, Newcastle's council have anticipated it. Excavators are tearing a deep trench through the heart of the city.'
