The Scottie Press archive seen for the first time. A blow-by-blow story of a Liverpool community dealing with historical, social change and urban planning.
Th Scottie Press is a community newspaper that covers the last fifty years. Curated by John Hyatt working with Joel Hansen of the Scottie Press, this will be the first time its archive has been displayed as an exhibition. Its history shows a marvellous timeline of the development of Scotland Road, its trials and tribulations. It is a blowby-blow story of a Liverpool community dealing with historical, social change and urban planning. Including also the film, Us and Them (1979), by Peter Leeson and the book, Goodbye Scotland Rd., The Bluecoat Press (2008), the exhibition reveals an arcing timeline of Liverpool stories across five decades which will continue from this exhibition into the future as The Scottie Press goes digital.
