Derby Local Heritage

We were delighted to have a stand at this years 40th anniversary Derby Family History Festival held at Derby Central Library.
We were bowled over by the number of people attending and their enthusiam and send our thanks to the Derbyshire Family History Society.
We were able to talked about our archives and chat with many Derby people whose experience of family photography at Winters goes back a generation or two. We shared many of our original Carte de Visite and discussed our restoration services and the emotional value we place on old family photos. It was lovely to share the sense of family treasures!

We also started taking bookings for our FREE heritage tours as part of Heritage Open Days in September  2016 when we hope to be opening up a whole new room to the public for the first time!
As always these events involving the public are what make heritage a joy so do book on a tour with us (details can be found on our website
