About the Collections

The beginnings of an online collection of my historic photographic material collected since 2010.

Due to the large amount of material, I have started with the smaller collections of Lantern Slides and Stereograms. Followed by the Daguerrotypes, Ambrotypes, Tintypes, Glass negatives, Albums, Carte de Visites and Cabinet cards and ending with other printed material.

The collection has been built up by purchases from Ebay, auction houses, antique fairs, car boot sales, private sales and generous gifts. Some have even been salvaged from the bin.

It's taken a while to figure out the free Omeka software and these first collections are tests for uploading of images and metadata.

This front end live version is a temporary skin until I can adapt the CSS code to my liking. It is the most appropriate of the limited themes available.

If you'd like any further information please do just get in touch. Thank you,
