This fascinating volume is drawn from the extensive archives of Warrington Museum which was created in 1848 only nine years after the birth of this new medium. Warrington's amateur and professional photographers have left us a rich legacy documenting the story of the town and its inhabitants. From the faded sepia prints of the 1850s to the crisp digital images of the present day these images guide us around our vanished heritage and help us come face to face with our ancestors. Meet pioneering amateur photographers and explore the fascinating story of a photographic business which chronicled the town for almost a century. Learn how to unlock the secrets of the family photograph album and step into the studio of the professional portrait photographer. Discover a time before the era of the smartphone when photographers were respected for their technical skills and artistry. Relive the era before the selfie when curious spectators came out to watch the photographer recording them for posterity.
