EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a street scene in Risca, a small town located just four miles from Newport in Wales. The focal point of the image is the row of council houses that line the road, showcasing an important aspect of housing in this community during the 1960s. However, behind this seemingly serene snapshot lies a story of controversy and uproar. The councils differential rents scheme implemented by local authorities has stirred up strong emotions among residents. This scheme operates on the principle that those who earn more should pay higher rents for their council homes. The photograph, taken on April 12th, 1965, freezes a moment in time when tensions were running high regarding this divisive policy. It serves as a visual reminder of the discontent felt by many individuals within this tight-knit community. As we delve into history through images like these, we gain insight into not only architectural landscapes but also social dynamics that shaped towns like Risca during the mid-20th century. This particular print transports us back to an era where housing policies sparked heated debates and challenged notions of fairness and equality. Memory Lane Prints allows us to explore such significant moments captured through photography without commercial intent or association with any company.
