Welcome to Poultry Photos and our exclusive collection of Historical Poultry Photographs specialising in Chickens, Waterfowl, and Turkeys. Also available are other animals, farm implements and period farmyard scenes that have been carefully selected from nearly 3,500 photographs from the original 6,000 glass plates. We also supply books by Ian Kay and posters of Poultry & Waterfowl. The historical photographs have been taken during the 1920s through to the 1940s by the late Mr Arthur Rice.
We can now provide a facility to fulfil your orders in either the UK or abroad. Please have a browse through the wonderful collection and if you would like to purchase an item, once you have chosen it and go to the checkout you are able to choose the currency you wish to pay in.
Within this site you will be able to look at the vast collection of poultry photos of different breeds (all available for purchase) and see how some of the breeds have developed for the better and some that have declined,also you can see some breeds that are now extinct. If you cannot find your specific breed or have any questions please email us.
You are able to purchase any of the photographs contained in the collection from our store, either mounted with or without a frame. In most of the breeds we have produced a montage, printed in a sepia format. Each montage depicts between 7 - 12 images of the best of that breed currently available with bird identification and mounted in a frame measuring approx. 21"x 17.5". Single prints are also available of individual birds - these can be collected at various shows throughout the UK or we can arrange mail order direct to your door.
If you would like to see a greater selection of a breed, or you are a publisher interested in using photographs from the collection, please email or contact us and let us know your requirements.
