I run a website on Cambridgeshire Photographers 1840-2000 www.fadingimages.uk . I am always interested in images to illustrate the work of these photographers and would be very pleased to collaborate with other collectors or photo historians. Please get in touch if you spot any errors on the site or have information or images you would like to add .

The site is still in its infancy, but growing. I would welcome comments, suggestions, examples and collaboration on anything covered by this site.
Many Thanks. Les
