Phyllis Nicklin's photographs of Birmingham
Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know the weakness I have for photographs of buildings and street scenes from the mid 20th century.
So the work of Phyllis Nicklin was bound to appeal to me.
She was the staff tutor in Geography in the University of Birmingham's former Department of Extra Mural Studies in the 1950s and 1960s.
She died in post in 1969, leaving behind thousands of slides she had taken for her classes.
The video above, made for a recent exhibition in Birmingham, celebrates her work.
