Gelatin silver print entitled 'Birmingham, January 1969. Mr and Mrs M and their four children lived in a council owned house in Vincent Crescent, Balsall Heath. Apart from the poor state of the property:- no bathroom, no hot water, outside lavatory, inside walls running with damp - these children were sleeping in the middle of winter, on two sodden seat cushions covered by a couple of old 'macs', there was no heating in the room, the snow lay outside and the windows were broken'. Photograph by Nick Hedges.
