Scope and Content

Large glass plate negatives measuring 15"x12" and 12"x10", many of which are enlargements taken from earlier-dating negatives. Divided into 9 subject groups: studio and wedding portraits, group activities and sports, domestic architecture, street scenes, pubs and shops, places of worship, occupations and manufacturing, railways, and commemorative documents. The negatives are mostly unnumbered but many of the commercial images have labels indicating the customer name. The small circular labels found on some of the negatives are of a later date.
