Tales from the Belle Vue Studio


Alison contacted us after friends had told her they’d seen her photograph in the TV documentary. At the time it was taken she’d lived on Manningham Lane when first married. The photograph was taken not long after their wedding. She now lives in Aberdeen. 
She wrote “As far as I remember the circumstances of the photo, I was about to take up my place at Bingley Teacher Training College and needed a photo for the college records and my student union card. We had no camera and I think photo booths, although around at the time, were few and far between. In any case, the studio was only a few doors down from where we lived and I must have decided that it was easier to nip in there rather than finding a DIY booth.”
