The postcards were originally published by J. Valentine and Company, who were one of the largest postcard publishers in the early 1900’s. It’s thought that more than a million photographs were taken all over the country for the company. Today only a fraction of these survive, the majority of which are badly damaged and discoloured.
“Do you do framing?” This is a question we still get asked on a daily basis, even though this is an in-house service we have provided for more than 25 years.
With this in mind we have made a few alteration within the gallery which includes relocating our customer serving area to the front of the premises and opening the shop window space. Many of our customers prefer it to our previous layout and have commented on how bright and spacious it feels. New frames and mount card colours have been added to our framing range enabling us to offer an even larger selection to enhance your pictures. So if we get asked “Do you do framing” again, we will have no option but to direct the individual to Specsavers 🙂
After three weeks of painstaking restoration, our cherished shopfront is looking better than ever, and we are absolutely thrilled with it!
The carpentry work was carried out by local craftsmen specialising in removing perished woodwork and sympathetically replacing it with hardwoods. This is the final stage of an ongoing project to preserve the property for another hundred years, as we believe it is our duty to do so. The new signage and canopy finish it off nicely.
Why not come and have a look and see what you think.

The personality of each animal is always the most important thing to capture. Often with a humorous twist, he hopes to share his perception of the animal world with the viewer.
