Talking Picture no. 39: Florence Alma Snoad by Daniel Meadows
This week’s movie from Daniel Meadows is the 39th of 40. That means next week is the last…Then I suggest a day watching the lot and a trip to the Library of Birmingham to see the work it relates to, and all that surrounds it.
As Daniel posted on Facebook, “If there is one person’s story that sums up the meaning of my bus adventure, this is it. Florence Alma Snoad is number 39 of the 40 movies I made to celebrate the acquisition of my archive by the Library of Birmingham. We are nearing the end.”
The latest Daniel Meadows movie from his archive at the Library of Birmingham, ref MS 2765. Shot at Daniel’s sister’s wedding in 1974, which is mentioned in The Bus: The Free Photographic Omnibus, 1973-2001, published in 2001.

Talking Picture no. 19: Italo Rigali by Daniel Meadows
Another great movie from Daniel Meadows’ archive at the Library of Birmingham. Three weeks ago I was lucky enough to hear Daniel sing along, ‘live in Preston’, to Bollard Calypso.

Talking Picture no. 16: George Hepple
Following from the release of last week’s movie and book, from Bancroft Shed by Daniel Meadows, this week is a movie shot a year earlier, 1975 in Burnley. Still weaving, but perhaps the language of weaving in many ways.
