Dr. J. Philip Dodd MSc MA 1912 - 1993

Dr. J. Philip Dodd , local historian, lived on Townfield Lane, Frodsham, and when he died he left all his papers to Frodsham & District Local History Group. Amongst these papers were some 35mm transparencies ( 943) taken between 1960 and the mid 1980s. These consisted of seven Kodak boxes and a block of 12 drawers for storing 35mm transparencies. There were also paper lists of the titles. His intention was to photographically record Frodsham in the midst of change and before all traces of the old village had disappeared.

For archive purposes the slides have now been scanned, labels added from the original title sheets, and put first onto a CD, and now made available here. This was done to help the Archivist and allow access to the images without the transparencies having to be handled in future. Please click on 'slides' or 'gallery' to activate the images.

Slide scans from the Kodak boxes are in seven files labelled Box 1, Box 2 etc. The images in each box are labelled (in Box 1) B1 001, B1 002 etc. and so on with B2 001 being the first image in Box 2 ...up to Box 7.

Slides donated by the families of Joe Barker and Tom Edmundson have now been scanned and added to the collection .
