A word from our customers

We are always grateful and proud to hear back from you about what you think of our products or the service you have experienced. Here is what just a couple of you have told us.

I am so thrilled with the framed photo print that I have just received from you. Choosing and ordering the print was simple and straightforward, and the quality of the reproduction was first class. I ordered a 1948 print of Ramsgate market place - and I think my mother is in the photo!

Recently I received my copy of "I Remember When" (I had a friend send it to me) I am extremely satisfied with the quality of this book. I am also grateful to you for choosing some of my own contributions to include in this fine coffeetable book
I firmly believe that the Francis Frith Collection is a wonderful way for us to memorialise our living experiences for others to rerad.

Again Thank You for these opportunities.

Thank you very much for the excellent, prompt service and delivery of my order. It's a gift for my father's 94th birthday next month, hence the search for a photograph of somewhere in Plymouth (he was born there and always lived there) from the year 1925. I am sure he is going to be delighted with the gift; it's always so difficult to find something "different" for a gift when somebody has attained that age and has everything! Much appreciated.

I have just viewed many beautiful online pictures of old Rochdale. My memories only go back to the 1960's when I started work there but my mother shared her memories of days back to the 1920's or so. What a town to be proud of in the old days and what proud people Rochdalians were. I wish the same could be said of the town nowadays. So sad what has happened. Thank you so much for the marvellous pictures that have both made me smile and brought a tear or two. God bless you.
