Many thanks for all the beautiful Frith prints we have received from you in the last 12 months. Five were for our Golden Wedding August 28th & this last order is for Christmas - thank you again for agreeing to send me the correct frame for the map which is wonderful. Also thank-you for the free book & for the Free address book. Gladys Harrison.

I am really thrilled with your website. I am visiting it after having bought your Around Manchester book. My family come from Salford and Manchester and I am ordering some photos from the book.
