British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

The Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is exhibiting a collection of Albert Beaney photographs, and is inviting local residents born during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s to see if they recognise themselves or neighbours.

His collection, consisting of more than 40,000 negatives and photographs dating from 1945 until 1970, was acquired by the museum in 1998 with help from The Swindon Society and has been a hidden treasure just waiting to be unveiled. With support from the Swindon Society the collection is now in the process of being digitalised. But you can see some of them in this exhibition here, and you can read an earlier BPH posting about the project here.
