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. 25: Charlie Sutton — Daniel Meadows

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.

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.

Talking Picture no. 23: Stanley Replies — Daniel Meadows

This week’s release from Daniel Meadows and Stanley Graham is proof of the value of engagement and collaboration. Stanley’s home made movie. Excellent.

If you’re new to Daniel’s work, please look at his Photobus website, and in particular, the digital storytelling section.

The Daniel Meadows Archive is at the Library of Birmingham, catalogue no: MS 2765.

Talking Picture no. 21: Stanley Graham — Daniel Meadows

Stanley Graham and his engine, ideas for a ‘well balanced life’ and avoiding stress. Excellent, my favourite so far from the Daniel Meadows Archive (Library of Birmingham, catalogue no: MS 2765).

I’m publishing this Thursday Bancroft Shed Engine House 1976, by Daniel Meadows. More of Stanley and the engine then…

Talking Picture no. 23: Bessie Dickinson — Daniel Meadows

Following from the release of last week’s movie and book, from Bancroft Shed by Daniel Meadows, this week is a movie shot a year earlier, 1975 in Burnley. Still weaving, but perhaps the language of weaving in many ways.
