The Lucie Hinson archive

Archive of old Dales photographs from the 1950s & 1960s taken by Lucie Hinson

In 1948 Lucie & Ron Hinson & their two young sons moved to Swaledale to open and run the new Grinton Youth Hostel. They were keen photographers in the days when that also meant the development of the film and the enlarging and printing of the photographs. They had many of their photographs printed in the Dalesman magazine and in national magazines. They also produced a popular series of illustrated guide booklets of the various Yorkshire Dales.
