The Tetley

Photographs from the Brewery Archive

March 2016 - July 2016

In the Bar & Kitchen

Selected by Craig Atkinson

We invited Craig Atkinson of Café Royal Books to look through the photographs in the Tetley Brewery Archive. His selection, shown in the Bar & Kitchen, documented the boom era of the brewery in the 1960’s when it merged with other breweries including Ind Coope of Burton upon Trent and Ansells of Birmingham, to form Allied Breweries, then the world’s largest brewing conglomerate.

As Café Royal Books the artist Craig Atkinson has produced more than 300 publications to date, reproducing photographs that document social change in Britain. Many of these publications can be seen in the exhibition Picture Book, and the new publication Tetley Archive, which is available to buy in the shop.
