British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Over the past six weeks we at  Trinity Mirror central archive have reviewed our holdings from the Birmingham Gazette. A number of images have come to light by a photographer by the name of H G Crabtree. He appears to have worked for the paper from the early 1930s to the mid 1940s.

Any information about his life and career at the Birmingham Gazette would be appreciated

This is a typical Midland scene, between the wars. The boys are sitting on the edge of a canal bridge, water from their very recent swim showing on the pavement. My father claimed to have swam miles in the 'cut'.
