Peter J Walsh | The Haçienda, 1980s-90s
During his stint at Manchester’s City Life Magazine in the late eighties – photographer Peter J Walsh was in the right place at the right time as he became immersed in Manchester’s revolutionary Acid House, club and rave scene – documenting many hedonistic nights at the Hacienda.

Peter captured the early years of the UK’s Acid House explosion in the city and documented the many faces, and colourful fashions that graced The Hacienda dancefloor as the city became a cultural mecca and global export of music and fashion.
