Hi Les

Thanks so much for your repsonse to my Stickyback blog. I referenced yours and David's sites in my original post actually (using the title for yours that comes up - Cambridgeshire Photographers). Both your sets of information regarding Stickybacks was so helpful in its scope and detail. I will let you know certainly if I dig up any details on the Peterborough photographer. I'd seen the article about the Cornwall collection – some wonderful images in the mix there. Here is our Family Museum email (thefamilymusuem@gmail.com) if you would be kind enough to pass on Jon Symon's contact details, and then we can contact you too regarding our Stickyback progress and the show.

Kind regards,

Rachael
