A collection of vintage photographs of locations along the coast of Suffolk.

Description

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.
