Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I took over the stewardship of the Trinity Mirror collection back in 2004. Since then I have when possible try to discover a little of the history and careers of our earliest photographers and where possible try to credit their work.
Back in 1904 when the Daily Mirror became the first UK daily newspaper to print photographs on a regular basis published images simply carried the credit Daily Mirror. Little credit was given to photographers like Ivor Castle, Tom, Bernard and Horace Grant who were the pioneers of photo-journalism in this country.
My aim, and the reason for joining British Photographic History is to unearth as much information I can find out about these forgotten heroes of Edwardian photo-journalism.
Can you help?
If you have any information I would be delight to hear from you.
