Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
In the 1970's I acquired a fully working Beardmore Backdrop complete with 5 painted backgrounds .
It came from a Birmingham studio
I am hoping to find a suitable home as storage is on ongoing issue. I am hoping to find a home for the item that may appreciate its place in the history of British Photography.
I am not in a position to give it away and would appreciate any thoughts on a way forward .
Thank You for your time
These are stunning. I wish I could afford to buy them. Storage ... well, somehow I would make that issue go away :-)
Good luck with finding a worthy new home for them.

Agreed - stunning. I think I would start by contacting the V and A in London and take their advice as to the way forward. If they don’t want them they might point you at alternatives. Edinburgh Museum has a big photography collection but then so do many other Museums. They don’t only take donations - they also buy as far as I am aware.
