Ghost Streets of Balsall Heath


Last year, during the 50th anniversary celebrations for Birmingham University’s cultural studies department, the amazing photographs of Janet Mendelsohn were unearthed. Taken between 1967 and 1968, they are a snapshot of the streets and bomb-sites of Balsall Heath and Highgate on the brink of great change.

In advance of an exhibition at Ikon in 2016, for one weekend, the Old Printworks are showing a selection of Mendelsohn’s images alongside other documentation of the area.

The exhibition takes place from 11am-6pm, Friday 10 July – Sunday 12 July 2015 at the Old Printworks, Moseley Road. B12 9AH. The exhibition opening is from 6-9pm on Thursday 9 July.

Full information (including details of free associated talks and film screenings on Saturday 11th) can be found here.
