A collection of photographs that offer a snapshot of 1980s Islington have gone on display.

The exhibition, Don’t You Forget About Me, celebrates life in the borough during the decade of E.T., yuppies and Pac-Man.

It is part of a year-long project by the Blueprint Theatre Company, based in Bevin Court, Islington, who are also filming a documentary about the period entitled Every Time I Think of You, set to be screened in April.

The exhibition is at Islington Local History Centre in Finsbury Library, St John Street, Finsbury, until February 25.
