Roy Hackford:
“I have given talks on “Nostalgic Boston” for the past two to three years to various groups, some groups I have visited on several occasions.
George Hackford and his father, Edward Chapman, were vergers at Boston Stump for nearly 100 years and also established their photographic business in 1855.
The show at the Guildhall revolves around my very first talk which contains the majority of George Hackford’s photographic work. The Guildhall are kindly including a display of other Hackford watercolour paintings and a relation, Richard Hildred, is including some of his collection of old photographic wooden cameras.”
