I came across your website quite by accident and wanted to contact you to thank you so much for such a wonderful site. having spent the best part of an hour viewing old photos of places i used to live, i cannot tell you what an invaluable tool you have created. long may you continue to keep our beautiful country's history alive! thank you for allowing me to relive old memores, and to pass them on to my family, who are equally amazed and grateful.

They say that money can't buy happiness but in the case of frith photographic portraits there is a big exception. the framed photograph i received from my wife last christmas was superb! i also received a wonderful book the christmas before. i was so impressed that this christmas i've ordered another two framed photographs, the detail and quality is simply astounding.

Thanks for a great service and unique gift ideas
