This website first appeared in 2001 at weepingash.co.uk.
It's named after the house I live in, which lies beneath a venerable Fraxinus excelsior 'Pendula' planted over 100 years ago.
Initially a place to put my own photographs, the site soon evolved into a photo-history resource, featuring extensive material on Edwin Smith, Olive Cook, Raymond Moore, Tony Ray-Jones and others. My own involvement with The Cambridge Darkroom and Creative Camera magazine led to the inclusion of much information on those as well.
