Customer Testimonials

Many of our customers have been kind enough to write and let us know how they feel about us or our products. This is a small selection.

I am really thrilled with your website. I am visiting it after having bought your Around Manchester book. My family come from Salford and Manchester and I am ordering some photos from the book.

I received the Poster size Photograph of Abertillery this morning, I would like to say that is an excellent image. The quality and detail is wonderful.
Many thanks,

Graham Bennett

I am writing to ask you to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone concerned in my recent order of 7 photographs from the Around Bournemouth book. The package arrived a few days ago and I couldn't be more thrilled with it! The most important thing was how beautifully it was wrapped and it arrived in perfect condition. When I unwrapped the photographs I was so delighted with them and kept looking at them over and over again. Thank you for providing such wonderful photographs - I can't wait to give them to my family.

Elaine Longhurst

The photo arrived here in A1 condition 3 days ago. It's even better than I expected it to be and I'm so impressed with the photography and the really fast and convenient transatlantic transaction. It has been a very good experience as well as a good example of British business procedures and courteous customer service at it's very best.The photo of my former home; the old Rectory that my children and grandchildren have never seen is a treasure. The photo is even more special to me as my father's church was razed years ago and the Rectory was remodeled beyond recognition at the same time. Thanks to your photographic skills it will all live forever for me and my family.

This is just to say how delighted I am with the order I placed with you - order placed Tuesday, and arrived before lunch today. Absolutely brilliant. Item was required as a present for a member of staff at the Library, and everyone seems extremely pleased with the item.

Those lovely books arrived this afternoon and I am so happy! They were in perfect condition and very well packaged. I look forward to sharing them with lots of friends and family. If you ever need someone to 'put in a good word' for the excellent service of your business, please do not hesitate to ask me. Thank you very much.


Not really an enquiry but a tribute to your wonderful site. I just had to say how much I enjoy traveling back in time via such beautiful photography. Thank you so much and I hope that I am not out staying my welcome posting too many memories. Thanks again.

Pete B

I would like to thank you for your most wonderful books. For birthdays, Xmas, Easter etc they are great presents. Many thanks again.

Mr R Cummins

I would like to say that I have only just discovered your website, and think it is absolutely wonderful. I have recommended it to several of my friends. I found out some more wonders of your site, that you can send messages to other people who have left messages. I was delighted to send a message to a girl who lived in Shere at the same time as I did 60+ years ago, and who is now in Australia. I cannot praise your site highly enough. Do keep up the good work.

Virginia Pawlyn

This is just a huge thank you for the impressive framed map I received yesterday. The recipient of this gift will be delighted I am sure. Thank you again for your great service.

June Dowling

Just wanted to say that I am extremely pleased with the framed print I ordered - it's lovely. The whole process was trouble-free so I wish to complement your team - you answered my query about delivery times promptly and accurately. I placed my order on Wednesday and I took delivery at 12.00 noon today (Friday).

An excellent picture and an excellent service. I shall certainly be placing future orders with you.

Thank you.

Re: Order Conf. Refs. 299980 & 300163. These relate to 2 calendars you prepared for me containing pictures of Old Slapton, Dartmouth & Beesands in South Devon which I sent to two friends who live in Dartmouth. This is just to relay their great admiration and appreciation for their gifts. They were overwhelmed to see pictures of their childhood village, Slapton and to have a different one every month next year will bring back many happy memories. So, you see, not every email you get on this screen is a complaint. Well done and thank you for offering this item. I got a calendar for my parents last year with old pictures of Stanwell, Middlesex, where they were both born and they, too, were really happy and still haven't thrown it away. They just moved it to another place in the kitchen to make way for this year's 'ordinary' calendar. They are 84 and 85 years old.

Many thanks for making five people (including me!) very happy.

Kathy Pooley

I just wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery of the calendar I ordered. I am really pleased with it and in fact a colleague was so impressed she has also placed an order.

Ann Elvin

I just wanted to thank you for sending through a replacement print. Your service cannot be faulted. It was so nice to receive the replacement with no hassle and in plenty of time for Christmas.

Many thanks once again and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Sally Williams

Thank you for my order, my mother will be very pleasantly surprised when she opens it on Christmas day.Thanks again.

Michelle Moore

The Calendars that I ordered arrived yesterday. Such excellent service and I am delighted with them. Have no hesitation in recommending your service to all my friends. Many Thanks.

Val Newman

Thank you so much. I cannot recommend your customer service highly enough. I shall certainly continue to use you in the future, and encourage anyone else to do so as well.

Yours gratefully

Fiona Hensby

I have just received the four prints that I ordered of Market Street in Alton Hampshire. Just to say how amazed I am with not only the service but the quality of the prints and the framing was done to a very high standard. I will certainlt be recomending you and once again, THANK YOU.

Darren Potton.

Darren Potton

Thank you so much for spotting my oversight & contacting me. The start date for this calendar order should definitely be January 2008. While I'm at it, I'd like to thank you & your team for offering such a unique and heartwarming gift item. I'm confident the recipient will enjoy many a fond memory of her beautiful birthplace.

Thanks again.


Anthony Boutette

I am just writing to thank you for a wonderful service. I received my poster size prints yesterday and I am delighted with them. The service I have received has been first class. The quality of the prints is second to none. I am extremely happy with them.

In this day and age people just don't take the time to say thankyou and let other people know that they appreciate the service they have been given, hence this email.

Once again a very BIG THANKYOU to all.

Kathryn Kenny

I received the mounted print this morning and I am absolutely delighted with it. I would not hesitate to place further orders with yourselves. This is a gift for my parents 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary and I know it will be truly treasured.

Patricia Stevenson

Dear Francis Frith, I am 61 years old and for some years have been unable to locate a grave in North Wales based on a single photo taken in the 30s by my father (now deceased). Thanks to your Photo Gallery I found a cemetery that I didn't know existed, emailed them, and have located that grave. Your gallery is of inestimable value as a research tool. Thank you so much. Yours sincerely, John Hamilton-Smith
