Stephen Shakeshaft: Liverpool People at Conservation Centre

Stephen Shakeshaft on becoming a trainee photographer from National Museums Liverpool on Vimeo.

This is an excellent exhibition of photographs by the former picture editor of the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo. When you go to see it (which you must do) you can watch this video, the piece here is just a part of it, there are more excerpts on the website too.

Every picture really does tell a story and several bring back memories of my Liverpool childhood and youth (yes, it was all black and white and very cold).
