In 1916 George Dipple and Thomas Conway opened their first practice in Norwich. The family-run company still trades from the original premises but now has branches in Diss and Swaffham.
In 2015 a large quantity of historical optical equipment was unearthed in the basement and attic of the Norwich practice dating back to the inception of the company. Jo Conway cleaned and sorted through the rescued collection and proceeded to produce a series of photographs recording the artefacts. These intriguing photographs will be on display along with a selection of optical artefacts.
