Historic images of English life

Alan McFaden, recently retired as a studio photographer after 48 years with IPC Media, has been collecting glass plate negatives and other old pictures from the early days of photography for the past nine years. Earlier this week we shared with you his techniques for digitising these vintage photos quickly and cheaply.
What started as a modest pastime to occupy the winter months has now blossomed into a full-time hobby, Alan says. A regular at markets, boot sales and in eBay auctions, Alan has built up a portfolio totalling in the thousands.
In the gallery above, Alan shares some of his favourite early pictures of English life. To see more from his archive, as well as his own stunning portfolio of work following a 48-year career in photography, be sure to visit Alan's website.
