Working Class Movement Library

A blog from the Working Class Movement Library in Salford

A new crop of digitised photos now available online

Posted by wcmlibrary on September 11, 2012

Thanks are due again to the University of Salford, whose digital repository now houses 84 images from our photographic collections.   If you go to  you can browse through images of Manchester during the General Strike and other labour and peace protests from the 1930s to the 1980s.  There are also photos of  International Brigade volunteers in the Spanish Civil War, and some unusual shots from 1937 of a Manchester Communist Party pageant.

All the images are freely available to browse. Anyone wanting to use high res versions, please contact us to discuss terms and conditiions.

And while we’re on the subject of images, we don’t take photos of all our readers but we did ask this group to pose for us when they came to do some impressively diligent research last week prior to filming a new TV drama production:
