Jewish life in city exhibition

A SELECTION of photographs which recorded Jewish life in Manchester in the 1970s have gone on display in the city.

Shloimy Alman, who died last November, aged 69, spent hours visiting and photographing places of Jewish interest as he realised they were going to eventually disappear.

But now they are being exhibited until January 16 as ‘Vanished Streets’ at the People’s History Museum, in Manchester.

Shloimy did the same in the East End of London, where Sandys Row Synagogue — the UK’s oldest-surviving Ashkenazi shul — held an exhibition of many of his photographs.

“He realised things were changing, so he wanted to document it,” Shlomiy’s wife Linda told the Jewish Telegraph after attending the exhibition’s launch.
