Post Office Terrace Studio Cambridge

A massive collection of tens of thousands of negatives from the Post Office Terrace Studio Cambridge 1865-1985 has been deposited with the Cambridgeshire Collection at Cambridge Central Library. Over a number of years, volunteers, particularly from the Cambridgeshire Family History Society, have  been cataloguing the collection. Many of the thousands of negatives are portraits of local people and scans and prints from negatives can be purchased from the Cambridgeshire Collection . A guide to the catalogue of this amazing collection has been written and the Cambridgeshire Family History Society has kindly made available a spreadsheet with the first part of the catalogue. Both can be downloaded free from this site at www.fadingimages.uk/POT1.asp . It is now quite straightforward to discover whether your local ancestors were photographed at Post Office Terrace.
