John Heaton Cope ARPS (1926-2020)
Originally from Worcestershire, John Heaton Cope ARPS (1926-2020) was a professional photographer with Birmingham City Council for 44 years, latterly working as the chief photographer at Birmingham City Museum and Art Gallery. He lectured on the Midlands circuit of photographic societies for over 30 years and was an active member of the Leica Portfolio Club. He specialised in landscape, architectural and portrait photography.
John was a keen collector of antique oak furniture, pewter, copper and brass, rustic lighting, horse brasses, treen, engravings, commemorative china and books, with a particular focus on local history. On retiring to Ravenstonedale near Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria in 1993, John continued to add to his collections and published a short history of the shops in the village.
