Getting Her Hands Dirty by Roger Bamber

Mrs Thatcher getting her hands dirty. She was in Cornwall on a May 1983 election tour and plunged her hands into a pile of straw for some TV cameras, expecting to grasp wholesome wheat. Instead she found it was a bit of loose straw on top of a steaming pile of dung. ‘You can’t use that, she said to the photographers. But we did.

    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.

London 28 Jun 1939. Firemen battle to extinguish the flames at the warehouse of Carron Company iron founders in Upper Thames Street.According to the companies web site, Carron Phoenix is best known for its sink manufacturing these days but can trace its roots back to 1759 when The Carron Company was founded as an iron foundry in Falkirk. The Carron Company became a manufacturing power-house, driving the industrial revolution in Scotland to a point where it employed 5000 people, operated it’s own fleet of steam ships and even issued its own currency to enable global trading.

During The Carron Company’s history, it made domestic items like flat irons, cast iron baths, range cookers and most famously the Carronade cannons used by Wellington at Waterloo. Carron Company could lay claim to a marketing first as it was the first organisation worldwide to have its name synonymous with a product, as Lord Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory, was equipped with “Carronades”. Later Carron turned its expertise to making Britain’s famous red telephone boxes and post boxes.
