DescriptionStudio shot of the model, Rita Fisher, February 1955 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/13209Q). To read a blog about Turners advertising techniques see http://www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/turners-saved-my-marriage/" >www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/turners-saved-my-marriage/. Tyne and Wear Archives presents a set of images taken by the Newcastle-based firm Turners (Photography) Ltd. They were taken by the firm on is own account for possible use in their advertising campaigns. Turners frequently hired models to help promote their work and to encourage sales in their shops. Some of the shots are humorous or bizarre while others are quite suggestive. The images are fascinating for what they tell us about the times that produced them – the fashions, the attitudes, the technology … Most of the images are quirky and almost seem to invite comments. If you’d like to suggest alternative captions we’d be delighted to hear them! (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.
