The Frith Photo Collection

The Frith archive was founded in 1860 and contains over 365,000 photographs of some 7,000 towns and villages throughout Britain. Taken between 1860 and 1970, these form a topographical record of Britain without equal and is recognised as the only photographic collection of national importance remaining in private hands. Those below are from the 1950s and 60s.

DOL would love to know if you have any snaps of the parish in this period. If you do, then please contact Mary Robinson
