A collection of architectural photographs, largely of churches, monastic buildings, and later structures on monastic sites, in the British Isles, formed and probably partly taken by Canon Edward Greatorex (ca.1823-1900).
Approximately 1,260 of the photographs relate to sites in England, 240 to Scotland, 32 to Ireland, 18 to Wales and 8 to the Isle of Man. Some are the work of commercial photographers, but a large proportion of those relating to buildings inEngland were probably taken privately, possibly by Greatorex himself. The prints vary in size from ca.3 x 2 inch up to 12 x 10 inch. Many are albumen prints.
