Knock Three Times: Working Men, Social Clubs and Other Stories
by Chris Coekin
Publisher's Description
Working Men’s Clubs were originally set up for the support and education of the working man. Many clubs have long since disappeared, though there are still six million UK members.

As a child, Chris Coekin visited clubs with his parents, both in his home town of Leicester and, on family holidays, around England. Knock Three Times is set in the Acomb WMC York which Chris first photographed in 1996.

Through photographs and archive material, Coekin explores the cultural roots and identity of the Working Men’s Club and examines the complexity of working class culture, as well as ideas of masculinity, relationships and the work ethic.
