Description

[002067] Harris, John. 18.6.84: Orgreave. Leeds: Leeds Alternative Publications Ltd. First Edition. Elephant Folio. Poster. Very Good. Printed single sided poster, approximately 305mm x 430mm in size, n.d. but 1984.

Very minor creasing to edges, minor abrasion to reverse where a sticker has been removed, otherwise quite bright and clean.

Original poster of this well known image of attempted police brutality, with the mounted policeman attempting to strike Lesley Boulton with his baton (she was apparently pulled away by someone behind her and he missed).

Orgreave is still a source of major contention, and indeed is the subject of a long essay in The Guardian, on the day of cataloguing this item (18/05/2017)
