Left: ‘A young dandy wearing a formal suit and Top hat, circa 1890’ Right: ‘Conroy Campbell, a pupil at Willesden High school, 1973’

I just rediscovered this book; Stuart Hall and Paul Gilroy put it together in 2007. It uses press photos to document post-war black settlement in Britain during the twentieth century. Instead of just recording the immigrants’ settlement the book paints a really beautiful picture of people’s lives. via Black Britain: A Photographic History | Teenage
