It was a new way of earning a living, becoming a photographer in the early twentieth century. There was a new demand for images of themselves and their families that had grown among the middle classes; babies were to be celebrated, activities broadcast, occasions recorded, and all this to be shared by a process that had become cheap and easy, with the mass production of cameras and film. In the heyday of postcards, the work of supplying images led to a worldwide spread of the job of photographer. This collection of pictures shows how well they advertised their presence and availability.
