Full caption:
 
Mr and Mrs M and their four children lived in a council owned house in Vincent Crescent, Balsall Heath. Apart from the poor state of the property – no bathroom, no hot water, outside lavatory, inside walls running with damp – these children were sleeping in the middle of winter, on two sodden seat cushions covered by a couple of old ‘macs’, there was no heating in the room, the snow lay thick outside and the windows were broken. Birmingham, January 1969
 
Included in the exhibition "Make Life Worth Living: Nick Hedges’ Photographs for Shelter, 1969-72" in the Virgin Media Studio, Media Space, London from 2 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.
