The Search for Eugenia Fynch - the story of Norfolk's unknown Victorian photographers

'The Search for Eugenia Fynch - the story of Norfolk's unknown Victorian photographers' is the first book produced by the Acle Community Archive Group (ACAG) with the support of the Norfolk County Council Library and Information Service. It was published on 8th September 2011. 

The book recounts the forgotten story of a family of Victorian photographers and in reproducing over 100 of the stunning photographic images of the Finch family, depict the social history of Norfolk over almost three decades from 1860 to 1888. Photographs include views of Acle, Great Yarmouth, Norwich, Thetford, Aylsham, Cromer and many villages in the Broadland area such as Blofield, Cantley, Reedham, Fleggburgh, Winterton, Rollesby and Filby. It is a compelling tale of the fortitude and entrepreneurship of a struggling Victorian family that will be of interest to social, family and photographic historians alike.

The book can be purchased through Ebay.
