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.

About The Author

Frances and Michael Holmes

We love living in Norwich and not only enjoy researching and documenting projects but also being able to share our work. We are the first to admit that we are more “enthusiasts” than historians and although we set ourselves high standards, we believe that such activity should be fun. As a team we can each work to our strengths which allows us to present our work in a variety of media: books, websites, presentations and film.

Michael has lived in Norwich all of his life, Frances arrived in 1983 for a year but could never find a good enough reason to leave! After a career in IT, Michael is the techie whilst Frances’ background, involving links with both the corporate and voluntary sectors, is used to good effect in organising and researching. We particularly enjoy meeting and working with a huge range of people from many different backgrounds and helping to preserve and promote Norwich’s rich heritage.
