Photographer's Shop

Around 1960

"I am a professional writer about to start on my next novel and have decided that one of the main characters is to be the husband of the proprietor of a photographer’s shop.

The story is set in the early 1960s.  Like most writers, when they start a book there are some parts that need research as we know little or nothing about a topic.

My knowledge of photography on the whole is very limited, but especially during those times, when I was very young.  I was wondering if you are aware of any publications that I may get hold of, - e.g. if someone has written their local family business history or their memories of life in a camera shop in the late-1950s - anything at all, in fact, that would give me an insight into how a business of this sort was operated.

Maybe through your network you know of someone whose family ran such an establishment that would be willing to talk to me that I could visit or telephone.

I live in Leicestershire, and don’t mind travelling within a 100 mile radius to get the information I need."

If your memories relate to Edinburgh, I would also be interested to read them myself !
