Bob Marley and the Wailers heading to the Odeon Theatre in Birmingham, England in 1975.

"It must have been a strange sight, seeing dreadlocks walking along a British city main street in 1975!" remarks photographer Ian Dickson. He expected they would go to the concert hall by limo; the Wailers were not going to waste good money on transportation. Dickson met them at their hotel and walked with them to the gig, nearly a mile away.
