• 24 Sept 2014: This has just gone live on our Press Photo History site:
I recently met with Sue Bonnington the granddaughter of a chap who worked in the photo department of London News Agency in Fleet Street for most of his working life…even returning in retirement. In fact he joined LNA when it started 1908. The LNA is an agency we are regularly asked to trace photo licensing enquires for. Thousand of their prints survive in newspaper archives around the world but the negative archive has disappeared. LNA was one of the leading agencies in the golden days of UK press photography so to have this detail from Sue is great.
