Liverpool 1980s

Today we will visiting in the 1980s’ Liverpool. Watch out, 52 kicking photos coming!

Liverpool fell to the depths never before seen in the early eighties. The economic recession, which is heavily affected by the city (and the country), mainly due to the shrinking industrial production and the endless factory closures have sparked stunning unemployment. Overall strikes, the level of public utility services also declined sharply, the rate of crime increased and 1.200-1.500 people migrated from the city during this period. In 1931, the population of 860,000 settlements fell below 500,000 in 1991, and in 2001 reached a low of 445,000. A third of the flats were for sale, rent or completely abandoned. Martin Parr’s pictures summon us this desperate period today.
