How did Martin Miller get his start in antique guides?

I never had a job, let’s start there. I started off doing freelance photography. I met somebody who was an antiques dealer, and then I started having an interest in antiques. At that time, there were no antique price guides around at all. You had one in America, but there was nothing in England; so I persuaded him to give up the trade secrets, so to speak, and help me produce the Lyle Antiques Review — that was in 1969. So that was the beginning of the antiques part of it, really, and I’ve been doing that ever since. Then I had a child and other things came along; but the antiques, that was the first love, I suppose.
