Post Office Terrace Studio, Cambridge

Congratulations to the Cambridgeshire Collection Volunteers who have just catalogued another 400 plus boxes of negatives from the Post Office Terrace Studio, Cambridge. These negatives contain portraits, not seen since the 1890s, of around 2000 folks from Cambridge and elsewhere. Also transcribed are the diaries and an order book from the earliest years of the Ramsey and Muspratt partnership 1932-1935. All of this information joins the catalogue of over 900 other boxes of negatives recorded by Cambridgeshire Family History Society volunteers. The catalogues and a guide to the collection can be found at www.fadingimages.uk/POT1.asp

New Stickybacks Site

The results of our research into the two Stickyback photographers in Peterborough in the early 20th Century were starting to skew our site away from its geographical base in Cambridgeshire. As a result we have moved all the material on stickybacks and other small portrait formats to a new site, which we hope you will enjoy. It is at http://www.stickybacks.uk
