Wilkinson’s poster for Delaney’s classic about northern working-class life is constructed digitally from portraits of Lesley Sharp and Kate O’Flynn, as mother and daughter. The plan was to photograph the actors on location in Manchester, but Sharp’s schedule did not permit this and the image had to be blended digitally from pictures by Phil Fisk shot in a cobblestone street in London. Wilkinson researched old photos of streets and corner shops with adverts and then she and Fist spent a day driving around Manchester looking for similar locations that could be made to resemble the 1950s in the final image.
