I couldn’t find a carte de visite expressing a “Happy New Year” sentiment – I’m sure they exist. Instead – here is one with a belated Christmas message.
A couple of new mystery items have been added today to the site at http://www.fadingimages.uk/current.asp – any help with these would be much appreciated.
Meanwhile many hours have been spent on transcribing studio diaries from Ramsey and Muspratt at the Post Office Terrace Studio in Cambridge. These are from the early 1930s when the firm was founded and cover the period before the start of the firm’s extensive card index of its clients, now housed in the marvelous Cambridgeshire Collection. Transcription is complete and work is being finalised in adding references and explanations from local press research. The diaries will be published on the site later this month.
