In 1984 The Smiths finally released their first studio album which established their position in British indie scene, their articles and photos were on many newspapers and magazines.
It's getting harder to select photos because of more choices.
The suggestion will be open 7-10 days then a poll will be posted.
Each user can nominate 5 photos of Morrissey (or The Smiths) taken / published in widely available commertial publications in 1984.
It means no photos from fanzines, I'm afraid.
I'd like you to 3 things in mind to when you select photos:
Also many thanks to Comtesse who runs excellent The Arcane Old Wardrobe where you can search / check the year of the photos from photo gallery.
The polls cover 1983-2009 i.e. 26 years, I decided to exclude photos taken by amateur photographers, Smiths / Morrissey single and album sleeves which don't have a photo of Morrissey.
Basically the photos get most suggestions are selected for 1984 poll.
Maximum 15 photos for each poll because vBulletin software does not allow more than 15 poll options.
I suggest you to visit The Arcane Old Wardrobe's photo gallery and It May All Ends Tomorrow before you submit your 5 favourites in here.
It's simply impossible to please everyone, if you don't agree with the rules, I'd be very appreciate to have some constructive suggestions.
Thank you very much for your help.
