Sad to learn about the threat to Birmingham’s public library where, thanks to Pete James, they have become one of the great resources for British photography.

Very naughty to have announced the plan and the short “consultation” period just before the holidays begin.

Please sign the petition, “Birmingham city council: Protect The Library of Birmingham’s Unique Collections of Photographs.”

Here’s the link to more detailed information and the online petition organised by Paul Hill:
