Dates of existence



Alan Bulman was born in 1926 in Cyprus. During the Second World War, he fought for the British Royal Navy and began to be interested in photography. After the war, he started work at British Films Limited where he preserved film. Bulman immigrated to Canada in 1963 and restored old films and provided stock images for Graphic Consultants Ltd. He continued to work with film and photography throughout his career. His interest and skill in preservation eventually allowed him to open his own company, Colour Prints (1974-1994), which worked with both contemporary and archival prints. Bulman collected photos, text, and film over his lifetime.
