Faces from a demonstration ...... no. 1 ....... at the window

From a distance of nearly 4 decades I have no idea where in Birmingham this was, other than that the demonstration seemed to meander through bits of the city which seemed well off the beaten track.

The year was 1983 and this was one of the large demonstrations organized by the Labour Party to call for action to reverse the growing levels of unemployment which on that Saturday stood at three million.

Location; Birmingham
