UPDATED • Work on page layout and selection of images is now largely finished, but there is still some fine tuning going on. According to the publishers: “The final selection is proving to be a very difficult process. Firstly there are a couple of thousand photographs to choose from. We are trying to have a balance of both the technically very good images as well as those which perhaps tend to be a little more ‘arty’ due to technical issues, but still have a lot of visual interest. We also want to try and include as many different UK locations as possible. Each image is being ‘restored’ digitally, but again we do not want to lose the qualities of the original photo, so this work is being limited mostly to exploring the shadow detail lost when the print was first made. Even so this work is very time consuming. Some images will be shown full page, others closer to actual size. We will be preparing some sample spreads shortly. “

The book is now scheduled for publication Spring 2018. Courtesy of Easy On The Eye Books, we can show the new cover above of the forthcoming book devoted to Walking Pictures. Titled Going Home On A Postcard, it tells the story of the trade, but is also full of great images taken between the early 1920s and the 1970s.

    I have got a picture of my parents probably took in the late 40s early 50s outside Osberts corner. I have been trying for months to find where it was taken and finally just come across this site. Also got a picture of myself and the rest of my family from the 50s which was taken by Wrates. Brilliant
