Portrait of Francis Frith

Who was Francis Frith?

Born into a Quaker family in 1822 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Francis Frith was a remarkable person. The story of his life and the photographic archive that is now his legacy is fascinating beyond compare. After almost being lost to bulldozers forever, the photographs his company created are an amazing and unique step back in time and now, with the wonders of modern technology, the current company and now custodian of this original archive has created this web site to showcase his and other photographers' work and allow you to purchase your own version of a truly wonderful piece of history.
