Olive Edis (1876 - 1955) is one of this country's most important pioneer women photographers. With a blossoming circle of Edwardian Society sitters, including aristocratic and royal faces it would have been thoroughly understandable had her fashionable photographic studio become her entire cosseted world. This lady however, had a different spark of steel in her make-up. It was no small compliment to be commissioned to record the work of the Women's Services at the end of the First World War - the only woman photographer so chosen.

Chance and family holidays had led Olive Edis to North Norfolk, and in particular to Sheringham, at that time transforming itself from fishing village to fashionable seaside resort. Recognising that much of the old world was being lost, Olive began to photograph many of the fishermen whose way of life had not changed for generations but was soon to be swept away. It was in this village of Upper Sheringham, in 1925, that Cyril John Nunn! grew up.

Taken under the wings of his mentor, Cyril himself became a professional photographer of note and continued to record local people and scenes from the Edis studio.

This book tells the story and brings together the work of these two remarkable people - recording through their photographs almost a century of life in and around this Norfolk town.

The Authors, Ashley Sampson and Alan Childs, have strong connections with Norfolk, while Cyril Nun, one of the subjects in the book, has unique access to a huge archive of material which belonged to Olive Edis.
