With the shortest day of the year upon us, this seems like a timely moment to share some wonderful winter images from the photographic archive at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery.
These photographs are from the Board Collection. James Robert Board was born in Lancashire and later lived in Sheffield, where he may have first trained as a photographer. He was in Derby by 1922 and operating a photographic studio at 9 Cavendish Circus in Buxton from 1926 until the 1970s. His step-son John Meddins was also a photographer, whose work is well represented in the collection.
Picture the Past has examples of Board and Meddins work from all over Derbyshire, which are available for purchase in a variety of formats.
Wherever you are in the world, we send you warm wishes for a joyful festive season and a happy new year!
