Old Photos of Dry Drayton Folks


In the centre of Cambridge, next to the entrance to the Lion Yard beside St Andrews church is a little passage called Post Office Terrace. As you enter the passage there are some buildings on your left. This marks the site of Post Office Terrace Photographer's Studio, which was occupied by a series of different photographers from the 1860s to the 1980s. Amazingly many thousands of the negatives of photographs taken at this studio have survived to the present day and in recent years there has been a lot of work by volunteers to catalogue these survivals. The photographs are now part of the Cambridgeshire Collection housed in the Lion Yard Central Library. You can obtain prints from surviving negatives from Cambridgeshire Collection librarians. cambridgeshire.collection@cambridgeshire.gov.uk
