A colour collage print of The Smiths stood outside Salford Lads Club. The collage is based on the original photograph taken by Stephen Wright.

The iconic cover of The Smiths' album "The Queen Is Dead" features the photograph of the band members outside the Salford Lads Club in Manchester. The image, taken by Stephen Wright, captures Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke, and Mike Joyce standing in front of the club's distinctive red brick facade and green door. This location has since become a pilgrimage site for fans. The cover's nostalgic and gritty urban backdrop perfectly complements the album's themes of youthful defiance and melancholy, making it one of the most memorable and cherished images in music history.

  • Print type

    A traditional C-type print is a colour print made in a darkroom from a colour negative or transparency. It is produced on light sensitive paper using a chromogenic process. Before digital technology, these were the prints we all received from the pharmacies from our holiday films. C-type prints are archival and are still preferred by some photographers and collectors to digital art prints.

    Paper type

    Fuji Crystal Archival Paper is a professional archival paper.

  • Delivery

    Delivery charges are added during the checkout process and calculated on a 'by country' basis.

    We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days. However, in some cases we may require a photographer to sign or send us a print, it will take a little longer to be delivered. In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

    It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK.  

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the UK do not have VAT charged to them.

    Our prices are displayed excluding VAT, so for orders outside of the UK the price shown is the price that will be charged. For UK orders VAT is added during checkout.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
