This exhibition explores early studio photography from 1854 onwards with a focus on the collection of W. W. Winter Studio in Derby, one of the oldest running studios in the world. Over the last 170 years the Winter photographers have recorded Derby and the people and things that were both important and commonplace in the town as it grew into the city that we know today.
Curated by Greg Hobson.
