‘Better looking than he really is’ (Transnational Biographies Workshop)

Keynote lecture by Robert Bickers (Bristol University)

In April 1998, the Guardian newspaper profiled a number of residents of a tower
block at Holly Street in Hackney who had been the subject of portraits by photographer Tom Hunter. One of these was a 'bit of a mystery man', Mr. Archer.
In this talk Robert Bickers teases out more of the life of a man who somewhat puzzled his neighbours.

All are welcome. The lecture is followed by a reception
