A Book of Brilliant Pictures Taken of Bingo Playing Characters

Recommended Posts

Michael Hess came up with an absolutely brilliant idea. He has combed unique Bingo Clubs and snapped photos of the charming bingo characters throughout the UK and created a book called Bingo and Social Club.

 

Here is a sample of one of his photos and explains:

"I took this particular picture in 2008, in Flutters bingo club in Biggleswade. The thing that really strikes me about this picture now is how timeless it is. You go into a bingo hall, and it feels like you're stepping back into the 1960s. When I first saw the man in the foreground I thought, "Oh God, he's a character straight out of that era, right down to the glasses." He was looking torwards the board on the wall, with all the numbers; I thought he would make a strong image. You can also see the shape of the old cinema auditorium behind him, the building sloping back."

 

I think LBB should put up a Pictorial bingo characters!!

Very interesting idea. Ive visited the site and went through whole collection, there are some really nice photos there. Hope more will be there in the future since there is only 14 at the moment.

 

Ive noticed most of the players on photos are more than 60 years old :D
