A vertigo inducing movie from Daniel Meadows in Rochdale this week, and the book I will publish this Thursday matches it. Steeplejack 1976.
Talking Picture no. 27: Peter Tatham by Daniel Meadows
I have been working on a new Café Royal site to try and combine the blog, archive and recent publications rather than have them in different places. So, here is the new site. I’ll be adding to the archive over time and for the next few weeks I’ll continue the blog here, but please start to follow the new blog,
Talking Picture no. 26: Jim ‘Lewey’ Sutton from the Daniel Meadows archive at the Library of Birmingham, ref MS 2765.
This Thursday I will be releasing the fourth book in the series of eight stories by Daniel Meadows Weldone Boiler Fluers 1976-1977. These eight are from the larger series of 40 that Daniel is releasing weekly until summer, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Free Photographic Omnibus; each a small part of his archive, held at the Library of Birmingham.
Talking Picture no. 19: Italo Rigali by Daniel Meadows
Another great movie from Daniel Meadows’ archive at the Library of Birmingham. Three weeks ago I was lucky enough to hear Daniel sing along, ‘live in Preston’, to Bollard Calypso.
