Ilford Photo Limited project

Hi all,
 
Eastside Community Heritage have recently received a £10,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to embark on a project exploring the history of Ilford Limited, a photographic company founded in 1879 by Alfred Harman.  
 
Ilford Limited is a big name in photography, and their films and cameras are used all over the world. However their move away from Ilford in the 1980’s means many people don’t realise the town of Ilford in Redbridge is the birthplace and namesake of the company. This project aims to connect local people, both young and old, with this important history which has helped to make accessible the world of photography.
 
Ilford Limited began life in the basement of Harman’s house in Cranbrook Road, but its success allowed it to move onto a new site in Roden Street which is today occupied by Sainsbury’s. As part of the project we will hold workshops at Sainsbury’s and in Redbridge Museum in order to share the company’s fascinating history. The business was a huge employer of local people and we hope to interview as many former employees as possible for our archive so this important heritage does not get lost. The project will also provide photography workshops in and around Ilford’s Town Centre.
