Further information: Bernard Chaplin bought his first camera with savings from work in 1958. He continued to shoot on film until he made the transfer to video in 1990. His films form part of a collection, which documents his family life and events in the Borough of Redbridge, as well as trips to central London, family holidays in the UK and abroad.
