This is amazing. Take a look at David M James's blog, which is "... a book of pictures, the subject being readings of poetry in the North-East of England from 1969 to 1987".

What an absolute treasure! Dare I ask: something for Leafe to consider ...???

Wow - what a treasure trove indeed. I was at several of those readings and remember David James very well - in fact the last time I read in public was at the Colpitts and he was certainly there with his camera. I don't see myself in any of those pics, but there are a lot of faces I know among both the poets and the audiences, including my best mate, Ged Lawson. Ric Caddel was also a very dear friend - I miss him.
