This instameet was held  alongside the  Ikon’s  “Varna  Road”  exhibition. The exhibition was a collection of photographs  by  American  academic and  documentary  filmmaker  Janet Mendelsohn.  Janet  spent  time  in Birmingham  in  the  late  1960s  and documented  everyday  life  in  the inner-city  district  of  Balsall  Heath. After hearing about the collection, the gathered IGers  explored  the  streets of  Balsall  Heath  seeing  how  they compared to the area in Janet’s day, as well as visiting the Moseley Road Baths.
