  • Good to see this getting some publicity and I hope that funding can be found for some proper work with the colection soon. Hoping Stuart's bid comes off.

  • An excellent article.  For me the greatest loss though is what was in Pete's head, but let's hope that something positive can be salvaged out of all this, and pray for enlightenment in the corridorsof power.

  • Good piece. Hope it makes the new politicians, post General Election, aware that they have to creatively nourish our photographic heritage. Even my archive :-)
