Norwich, A History and Celebration features the stories and events that make up the city’s fascinating history knowledgeably told by local archivist and historian Frank Meeres and illustrated with maps and photographs from the extensive Frith collection. You can learn about the personalities, past and present – including benefactors, tradesmen and businessmen – whose energy and innovation have played a vital role in shaping the city.
Francis Frith started his photographic business in the 1870s, seeing an opportunity to sell souvenir photographs to holiday visitors. He soon employed teams of photographers around the country and soon started producing postcards. After his death in 1899, his sons, and later his grandson, took on and developed the business. The business continued until 1969 when it finally closed, but the amazing archive of over 300,000 images was saved, and now, almost 50 years later is in the final stages of being digitized and made widely available through the publications and websites of The Francis Frith Collection.
