A photographic scoop for the Apna Heritage Archive!

We are proud to have a good number of images given to us by the generosity of Mr. Salgaram Dass for the Apna Heritage Archive. I met Mr Dass as he usually parks his car right outside my house to drop off of his children to a school here in Wolverhampton . As I get to know this very articulate and intelligent man he is instantly smitten with our work. Salgaram bought me negatives and then also learned skills and our protocols in scanning these amazing photos that depict the early years of life, living in Inkerman Street, Heath Town, Wolverhampton c 1960s. The vast majority of images here are taken by his father an ardent photographer. I restored and edited a few of these here and personally I find them nostalgic of a bygone age of innocence in the Black Country. Even more than that they are photographers dream and an amazing scoop for our archive in terms of telling the story of individuals and integration to life in Wolverhampton. There's more to come from this set of images we now have in our possession!
