Britain's First Photo Album

The achievement of Francis Frith and his team has been celebrated in a 10-part BBC Daytime television series presented by John Sergeant, 'Britain's First Photo Album', illustrated with hundreds of images from The Francis Frith Collection. This beautifully presented TV tie-in book accompanies the series, and will make intriguing reading for everyone interested in our heritage. This is no stuffy history book, but a colourful and entertaining title crammed full with evocative historical photos from The Francis Frith Collection of places all around Britain as they appeared in the 19th century, combined with modern colour photos taken by John Sergeant inspired by the locations as they are now. The historical photographs are brought to life in a series of fascinating interviews as John Sergeant meets people living or working in the same places today, who tell their stories as they work to keep Britain's heritage alive.
