Snapshot of the Past

A surprisingly common enquiry at Local Studies, is for information on local photographers operating out of Bradford in the 19th Century. Often, customers have found an old photo with a photographers name on the back and are curious as to who this was, or perhaps they are serious scholars of all things photographic!

The Library holds an index of photographers compiled from old Trade Directories by Local Historian Ken Kenzie, and an extremely useful website with a great deal of information and examples of photographers work can be found at:
Leeds and Bradford Photographic Studios 1840-1910
