The photos come mainly from the glass plate negatives by John Self which are stored at the Lanman Museum located in Framlingham castle, where all the proceeds from the book will be going.

In addition to the remarkable photos, they are in many cases further illustrated by period colourful invoices from the James Breese collection which relate to the business or person portrayed.
