Arthur Rice Historical & Period Photographs.

We are delighted to offer reproductions from the original glass plates and photographs taken during the early 1900’s by Arthur Rice.

Most of these are of winners, inc. Dairy and Palace exhibitions during the 1920/30s.

We have produced an A3 montage of some of the most popular breeds printed in sepia format. Each montage depicts between 7 to 12 of the best of that breed available with bird identification where possible.

These photographs show how these breeds were in that period of time. Some have progressed, but sadly some have not.

These photographs are not just historical, they are heritage.

You can purchase a frame at the same time as ordering or can have them supplied without for you to choose your own.

Collection can be arranged.
