Scope and Content

Half plate (6.5"x4.75") size studio portraits of individual sitters and groups, inked or labelled with studio numbers and surnames. The sequences of studio numbers run 1-400 (mostly unnamed), A1-1000, B1-1000, C1-1000, D1-1000, E1-1000, F1-316. These are followed by c.160 negatives with missing or illegible studio numbers that stylistically and date-wise belong to this group. Around 670 negatives were taken from earlier photographs, in some cases from Bagshaw's own very early portrait work. Approximately 250 negatives are of non-portrait subjects and c.340 are outdoor (non-studio) portraits.
