About these listings

Within this Archive we use the county listings as defined in 1974, because this fits better with the classification of historic material. However, if you would prefer to view the modern-day equivalent county names you can switch between the two using this button.

Modern counties include local unitary authorities and county names, so bear this in mind when browsing.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, please do ask! Our staff are highly experienced and know the archive exceptionally well. If you cannot see a photo on this site, this doesn't mean it is not available within the archive.

The Frith archive is vast and is constantly evolving and not all the photos we have are currently shown, we are digitising photos daily and these will appear on the web site over time.
