Who was Francis Frith?

Born in Chesterfield in 1822, Francis Frith ran a successful grocery business before his keen interest in photography brought him to the Middle East and Palestine in the 1850s. Later, he settled in Surrey where he established his photography company as the world's first specialist publisher. Before long, his snaps were being sold in thousands of shops throughout the UK.

Francis Frith died in 1898 but his pioneering work left a lasting legacy that continues today. His company sells framed prints, maps and other nostalgic memorabilia at francisfrith.com.
