The printing:

C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies.

C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. Read more about C-type printing HERE.

Art for sale. Test Cricket. Cricketing twins Joan (left) and Barbara Blaker, yesterday(02/06/1937)  played for Kent women against the Australian cricketers at Gravesend. England played Australia three times in 1937. England won, Australia won,  and the third test ended in a draw.

Joan and Barbara played for  Kent Women in 1936, when they were 23 years old. Blaker’s XI played matches against XIs led by other leading women players of the day. Joan played far more games than Barbara, although both played for Kent until the early 1950s. Barbara’s final game was in 1951, and Joan’s in 1955. Photograph by Frank Rust DailyMail
