Original, vintage, 1950 negative from the Ashley Series archive of photographs (which was produced between 1938 and 1956 by photographer Donald Birkinshaw, see below).

This negative is of Ashill, Somerset in 1950.

The negative measures 11cm x 6.5cm approx.

These views come from an extensive archive Library of over 15,000 images, taken between 1938 – 1956 covering views from Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Devon, Cornwall, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Somerset, Dorset, Isle of Wight and the Isle of Scilly.

The Archive lay un-discovered for many years until 1997, when it was purchased from the Birkinshaw family, and has proved to be a very Rare Archive covering the II World War period, when photographic film and equipment was expensive and hard to find.

The Stunning quality of Birkinshaws photographs covering the small local villages, towns, farming scenes and beautiful South East England landscape are works of art and are being brought back to life for the first time in over 50 years, some images have never been produced.

Copyright of the negative passes to the purchaser.


Please note the ‘mementoes’ logo is not on the actual negative.

Donald Ashley Birkinshaw - 1922- 1988 - (Short Biography).

Donald Ashley Birkinshaw was born on August 29th 1922 and attended Nottingham High School and Whitgift Grammar School, Croydon.

From an early age the countryside, photography and classical music were his hobbies.

His photographs were accepted for county magazines as early as 1938.

He joined the civil service in 1939 working for the Home office, Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Agriculture until 1946, the following year he produced his "Ashley Series" of postcards and calendars.

He stopped production in about 1953 as purchase tax made his profit margin too small to continue.

From 1953 onwards he only took photographs for his own pleasure.

Donald never married, living with his mother on the Hog's back near Farnham Surrey until 1970 when she died, he later moved to Wiltshire, Somerset and Cornwall where he died on June 25th 1988.
