Studio Closing

March 29, 2013

Studio Closing
Paul Viney’s studio in West St Helen Street is closing at the end of the month. It has been there since it took over from the barbers that used to be there, called In Trim, about twelve years ago.
Studio Closing
As well as weddings, and studio portraits, Paul is often to be seen at town events taking pictures so must have quite a collection of Abingdon life.

    That is sad. I was told that a few years ago another studio opened up opposite.
    There probably is not enough customers in a small town like Abingdon to sustain two photographic studios in the same street, particularly when their work is on a par with each other.

    Paul was active as a local photographer before opening this studio – I believe he previously worked at Ivor Fields – a very famous local business in Stert Street.

    A few years ago some of us did a project to show what shops or businesses had previously occupied the buildings in which various of our current shops operate. Paul’s building doesn’t seem to have been a shop for very long but it was interesting to see that in the early 20th century there were loads of photographic businesses in the town – guess it was all the rage when it was new technology!
