The Frith Blog
Articles, news and opinions from The Francis Frith Collection.
We are always looking at old photographs and quite often we come across fascinating stories, facts and scenes and we want to share these with you. This is why we created the Frith Blog - it could be a set of photographs connected with the current season, upcoming events or a theme. We hope you enjoy browsing what we've found and if you have any ideas of articles we could create in the future, please let us know.

Celebrate the spectacular scenery of Scotland and some of its most iconic landmarks. Some of these are historical images in their original black and white version, others have been colour-tinted by hand in the old-fashioned style, and some are modern colour photographs showing the magnificent Scottish scenery in all its technicolour glory which have been added to the Collection in more recent times. Enjoy the view!
