Jimi Thatcher Photos

Jimmy Thatcher – local photographer

The photographs displayed here were taken by photographer James ‘Jimmy’ Thatcher (1851- 1941) who lived the latter part of his life in New Road, Tadley. Assisted by one of his daughters, Amelia, he toured the lanes with his tripod strapped to the crossbar and the camera on the carrier of his bicycle capturing daily life in and around Tadley.

A local resident, Les Hawkins is a collector of local photographs and is particularly interested in those taken by Thatcher. He has asked TADS help in identifying the location and if possible, those persons posing for the photographer. If you are able to help identify any of these photographs please either contact Les directly (zzleshawkinszz@hotmail.com) or via TADS (tadshistory@googlemail.com).
