photopage boaks

Black and white photograph of a railway yard in the industrial north of England in the late 1970s.
This photograph was taken in London in 1979. Bill Boaks had once been an officer in the Royal Navy, but he made a name for himself as a conspicuously unsuccessful political campaigner for road safety. Here we see his campaign bicycle. His brand of politics attracted a good deal of attention, not all of it favourable.
