1973 the year the government introduced the three-day-week in order to conserve electricity due to the oil crisis and a time of transition in the East End. The community who had lived through the blitz were by now beginning to retire. The country was exhausted by strikes, public sector cuts and a desperate shortage of social housing. This 36-page zine captures a mood and a moment in the country.

Café Royal Books publishes limited edition Photobooks coveted by fans and collected by major institutions. The Zines focus on British documentary photography. Café Royal is run and founded by Craig Atkinson.

Craig explains ‘My aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography. I publish roughly 70 titles each year with a small edition ‘archive box’ every 100th title. These archive boxes are aimed at major collections, libraries and museums — helping to increase the visibility of the work and making the books publicly accessible for as long as possible. Collectors are wide and varied but include, MoMA NY, Harvard University, Oxford University, Cambridge University, The British Library, The Hyman Collection, Martin Parr Foundation, TATE, V&A / National Art Library’.
