Roger Mayne Photography 1

I’ve recently been digging out old books and stuff to stick on this site and  was taken by the cover image on a Pelican book from 1969 (the original came out in ’66). The book is ‘Adolescent Boys of East London’ by Peter Willmott. Researched from  1959 through to 1964 the book features interviews and excerpts from diaries with young kids and remains a  fascinating account of kids growing up in the Bethnall Green area of London during that time. The cover shot is by a British Photographer, Roger Mayne.
