A World Of 80s Style: Photographs Documented British Teenage Courtship At North England’s First Disco Pub

These photographs were taken by Tom Wood at the Chelsea Reach Nightclub in New Brighton. They belong to a prolonged period of visual negotiation between Wood, the immediate community and the wider environs of Merseyside. Girls and boys on the pull are unaware of his tactful lens, as they flirt, drink, letch, snog, and dance the night away…

Although most were taken between 1984 and 1987, Wood began photographing in the area in 1978 and by the time he started working at the club either knew or recognized by sight, many of its clientele.
