Mr John Freeman at his original shop at 54 High Street, Ramsey

Comments about this page

  • J Freeman appears to have been an early photographer. I have a collection of 19 Ramsey postcards published by Valentines of Dundee, many of which appear on this site. The index of this huge collection of 30,000 images is held by the University of St Andrews. I have recently consulted it and the entries numbered 52432-39 (from 1905)are annotated “J Freeman,High St Ramsey. Full usage rights but not copyright”. Interestingly I have one postcard (of Biggin Lane) which Freeman appears to have published himself as his name appears on the reverse but there is no tell-tale Valentine Number.
