Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Derby Telegraph reports that the Winters studio, Derby, has discovered a cache of previously unknown negatives and is looking for volunteers to helps conserve and digitise them, as it makes its archive available. It notes: Thousands of glass plate negatives are stacked in a cold, damp cellar – but even the staff at Winter's have no idea what is in them. The shop's manager, Angela Leeson, said: "We have managed to archive some of the collection and make sure that it is secure and not going to be damaged by the damp."However, the negatives in the basement are a complete mystery.
Anyone interested in helping to catalogue the archive should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01332 345224.
An open day is taking place at the studio on 13 September 2014. See: http://britishphotohistory.ning.com/profiles/blogs/open-day-w-w-win...
