Old Photographs - Cambridgeshire Photographers - Personal Recollections

From this page you can listen to our webmaster in conversation with Tom Johnson in January 2015. Tom, now in his eighties, has been involved in photography locally since he was a teenager at Impington Village College. For many years Tom managed Anglia Photo Works in Devonshire Road Cambridge, part of the Campkins group of businesses. We are really grateful to Tom for sharing his unique insights with us.
