Old Photograph

I've had a scanner for about three years; and I bought it when I got my current computer about the same time but have never used it for some reason until today. The above photo was taken in 1984 on almost the very eve of the miners strike. It's an image of a packed meeting on homelessness being addressed at that point by yours truly; at the end with his finger on his lip is John Pilger and next to him is Chris Homes who went on to become the Director of Shelter and the meeting was held in the old town hall used by the legendary Poplar Council. I will in the future give a more fuller account of that meeting and campaign but for the time being here's this old photo!
