Photochrom photography 1890 – 1910:
The British Isles in Colour

See inside

Photochrom photography is an early type of colour photography that brings to life scenes from an era that we usually visualise in black and white. The technique was mainly used for postcards and as a result the photographers concentrated on subjects of interest to the visitor and hopefully the recipient of their card; beautiful locations and the seaside are natural favourites, but also historic and civic landmarks, social scenes, parks and train stations.

Highlights from the photochrom book series shown on this page for your enjoyment.
