Trading in Transport Collectables since February 1989.
Photographs - From the Dinnages Picture Library, sourced from Original Negatives and Slides
A reminder that all of our library views were taken by transport enthusiasts through the use of domestic cameras and standard film and not to be confused with professional photographers. The quality of images can be variable which is dependant on a variety of factors, so for example, the type and quality of the camera, the lens, the film, how old and the condition of the negative or slide was at the time of scanning. The lighting at the time of the photograph can be dark in a garage or with the sun giving a shadow. All these and other factors can give a different look to either B&W or colour images.
Check out the Photo Newsletters for the local Brighton and Southdown views here.Dinnages, a family team, have been selling transport photographs since 1993 when one of our then retail shop customers came in with a bundle of these as a part-exchange deal for the diecast model buses they had ordered. This new topic of photographs after only trading at that time of four years, has now become our best selling and most desired & interesting product from our stall and online store, which led to us buying many more from a great variety of sources. We now have sizeable selection of transport photographs. A short time after we met up with Jack Turley from Tunbridge Wells with Brighton Tram views, and encouraged by Ernest (Ernie) Charman of Portslade also in the same year, to be offered seriously good B&W negatives from both photographers. Genuine original material from these two enthusiasts continued until Jack sadly passed away in 2003 then his sons offered us the remains of his collection in 2006 which included pre-war steam railway. As for Mr Charman, we still buy material from this well known local enthusiast on an exclusive arrangement, with all B&W now in our library. We hold all the known negatives from the late Jack Turley, some were sold to the M&D and East Kent Bus Club however records were not kept on which images. Over time we have now amassed quite a private collection, which considering we are not a group or society with the free publicity they obtain, it is deemed to be our reputation that has gained us these enjoyable collections. All the more to be enjoyed by our customers through sales of and the presentations at Sussex based clubs using the library. Profits as such from our sales get ploughed back into the circuit to aid our further research and printing primarily of our Southdown and Brighton material, whilst supporting through charitable donations, funds and by other means towards transport preservation projects.
With regard to material from Barrie Hutson, we began making hand printed old postcard sized prints direct off his negatives in 2003, then about 2009 scanning direct, offering 6x4 lab produced views exclusively through our Photo Newsletter as part of our 'Dinnages Picture Library'. Not quite promoted as a photo circuit, this provides invited 'friends' with historic photographs of bus operations in the traditional Brighton & Southdown area, although also including independents in Sussex, up to the mid 1980's. We are aware a small handful in comparison to what we have had, were offered for a short lived period to a local society, with all negatives again on loan so all the original material is with and still owned by Barrie Hutson at the present time. This collection therefore is quite possibly time limited within our newsletter. and may only add hand printed views here online.
On the left column category panel, you can see each sub-category on photographs which show stock listings of photos available like this (9). The first added were from the Late Dave Taylor, consisting of Southdown and CPPTD (Portsmouth) East Kent and Maidstone liveries. As of January 2011, we added more photographs, originally being in our Photo Newsletter first, in our BW Series local to the
