    At Fleet Street's Finest we sell C-Type prints and Alumini ChromaLuxe. Digital C-Type photographic prints use similar exposure techniques to 'dark room' analogue developing techniques but without the need for a negative.

    Equally the enlarging, focusing and exposure to the paper is managed by a computer using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb. The following process is still very much the same with the paper being processed in chemical developer, followed by a bleech fix before a wash to remove the processing chemicals.

    A C-Type print very much has its origins in traditional photographic processes but is originated from a digital file rather than a negative. Though, obviously, some of our vintage images are from scans of negatives.

About Chris Ware

Chris Ware was a soft spoken gentle man. He was born in 1900 in Kent and I met him in 1971 when I started work for the Keystone Press Agency.

He had stories of travel around the world and around Europe where he knew many Royal Families and photographed most of them.

When he was 14 he had been given a Kodak camera by his mother. He took that camera out daily with him on the morning milk round that he had. As the horse drawn milk float moved through the woods near Biggin Hill in Kent the keen eyed 14-year-old photographer spotted that a bi plane from the newly formed air force had crashed in the woods.

1966: Off-piste skiers 12,000 feet up at Corvatsch near St Moritz, Switzerland. Corvatsch is a mountain ski area accessible from the villages of Silvaplana  and St Moritz. According to Wikipedia ”Although St Moritz received some visitors during the summer, the origins of the winter resort only date back 154 years ago to September 1864, when a St. Moritz hotel pioneer made a wager with four British summer guests: they should return in winter and, in the event that the village was not to their liking, he would reimburse their travel costs”

Sandstorm In Egypt by Herbert Mason

Suez Canal 1956. Two British soldiers struggle in handkerchief sand-masks in a sandstorm near the Suez Canal in Egypt. The storm is caused by the Khamsin, a warm strong, long-lasting wind from the desert. The Khamsin, Arabic for fifty, blows at intervals for about 50 days from March to June. In 1956, Suez Canal was nationalised by the Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser so Israel, the United Kingdom, and France invaded Egypt to regain Western control of the canal.
