Fading Images - An Introduction

This site is a resource for family historians wishing to find out more about photographs in their family which originated in Cambridgeshire. It is also for local historians wanting to find out more about local photographs. We hope that information here will be helpful to anyone interested in dating old photographs, particularly the work of the many professional photographers who once lived or worked within the present county of Cambridgeshire.

This is a non-commercial site dedicated to the photography of the past. Old photographs are a fascinating part of our heritage. Often these gems become separated from their roots. Perhaps they are lost, discarded, or possibly unwanted personal effects after a death in the family. Sometimes they end up in a skip, at an antique dealer's, a charity shop or even at a boot sale. Unwanted, unidentified and undervalued, they deserve better treatment.

Here we try to rescue some of these gems, to identify them and unite them with someone who knows and cares about the location, people or events depicted. Please see current mystery photos. If you recognize a location or image please drop us an e-mail

If you have any old photographs or negatives from Cambridgeshire or information about Cambridgeshire photographers which you are willing to share with others, please contact webmaster@fadingimages.uk. We are always interested in scans of images to illustrate the work of photographers listed here and are only too pleased to acknowledge the source of any images used.

If you were part of the photographic scene in Cambridgeshire before 2000, perhaps working as a professional photographer, or in photographic sales, or developing and printing work, and have stories you would like to tell and experiences you are willing to share, then please get in touch.

The site is a work in progress and represents the present state of our knowledge. We apologise for any errors not yet spotted or corrected.
