A rare original collectors item
An original vintage promotional photograph from a recently unearthed U.K. Press archive. The newspaper closed down in 1983 and the archive has been in storage from that time.
No modern reproductions here !
Any dates stamped to reverse indicate when the photo was used in the newspaper, but as the photos are sent out usually for promoting a specific TV programme/ film/ concert/ record release/ event in that week/ month, the earliest date stamped gives some indication of age. Some photo's have printed dates, some are not dated. I will usually include a photo of the back unless it is totally blank or has nothing significant.
Reverse: Most press photos will have some combination of- writing, date stamps, press slips/ bio sheets stuck on, cropping lines, newspaper layout slips stuck on, agency stamps etc. See photo of reverse if shown
