This chapter describes the deprived inner-city wards used in the research. It draws on a combination of government statistics and reports, historical references, media articles, and photographs and descriptive text from older residents living in some of the research areas. As is shown by the perspectives and dialogue provided by the three participants and the analysis given, photography provides a useful way in which to study and understand older people's environmental perspectives. This supports Wang's statement that images ‘contribute to how we see ourselves, how we define and relate to the world, and what we perceive as significant or different’.

Keywords:   inner-city wards, government statistics, photography, historical references, media articles, photographs
