Ramsden Collection on Malta 1938

Scope and Content

Collection of prints and commercially produced photographs of Malta. Evan David Ramsden took or collected them while serving in the RAF in Malta. Though some have 'The Grand Studios, Malta' stamped on the back, this is probably the printer, not the photographer. The captions to 1-18 have been added by Donald Simpson, based in most cases on information on the back by Ramsden with modifications by his daughter, Pauline Fothergill. The captions of 19-28 are those printed on the photos.
