Rob Bremner | Pier Head Cafe, Liverpool, 1989
Aside from his well known colour photography, Rob Bremner built up a significant body of black and white photography work. These images were shot in and around Liverpool’s Pier Head, the images document the bus station and café – at that time it was a bit of a run down and grim place for some, however it was also an essential social outlet for many people, including the city’s elder working class communities who would spend many hours drinking tea and catching up with familiar faces.

Rob:”Liverpool’s Pier Head at that time was really just a dilapidated bus station where people went to catch the ferries across the Mersey. It was the last stop for most buses and older people with their free bus passes would alight there. There was a café, the staff were friendly and you could sit there all day sipping the same cup of tea and not be asked to leave. It was cheaper than heating a home. Danny who used to the run the burger stand would give me free burgers.”
