Don Tonge | Bolton and Manchester, 1970s | Open Edition Prints

Don Tonge’s photographs of Bolton in the 1970s capture the industrial landscape of the town in the days when life seemed a lot simpler for many.

Don’s rich archive features the daily life of Boltonians, some of them his friends. Like many photographers, Don focused on what he knew and what he could relate to, which shines through in his images. Here at British Culture Archive we believe Don’s work is up there with some of the best British documentary photography of the 20th century. Powerful images, some humorous; they all tell a story of life in a northern town.
