Most photographic collections whether in a museum or held privately should be stored in an environment of controlled humidity and light for archival longevity, otherwise they will fade and be lost for future generations to see. Due to this fact, old photographs should not be permanently on view - The internet is a perfect medium to remedy this issue.

This site is a large ongoing project with new material being added from contributors and also from the author's own collection. I encourage anyone who has any information on any of the pictures shown to email me, I will be grateful for your comments.


If you have some old Channel Island photographs in any condition that you think would look good on the website, please let me know. I am also willing to scan them for you if this cannot be undertaken.

Do not worry if they are faded, torn or marked.

For a small fee I am also prepared to scan, digitally repair and print any faded or torn photographs or albums of photographs for you (the originals will not harmed in any way), so they can be preserved for future generations.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Mike Deane
