The Gainsborough Film Studios at Islington North London prior to their redevelopment in 2002. Many famous British films were made here during the 1930’s with many of the stars of that time, including Will Hay, Arthur Askey, The Crazy Gang, and of course Enid Stamp Taylor.

    I am writing abook about my family’s history. My late sister worked as a secretary to Betty E Box, at Gainsborough Pictures. I would like to include in the book a photo of the studios and wondered whether you might be able to give me permission to use the one on your website please? or possibly put me in touch with the source. I can of course credit you or your website with the photograph if you would like.

    At present i am only printing a few copies for family etc. but I am trying to get permission to use all my illustrations now, in case I decide to try to get it published in the future.

    Many thanks Rosemary Frost

    Hi Patrick, I’m looking to use this photo (or get a more high-res one) for a project – I’d like to ask for some information. How would I be able to contact you? Would you please be able to email me?
