Scope and Content

Half plate (6.5"x4.75"), postcard (5.5"x3.5") and quarter plate (4.25"x3.25") size studio portraits of individual sitters and groups which do not have studio numbers and are mostly unnamed. The images are very similar to those in the previous series and slightly overlap them in date. However, as these negative do not have studio numbers, nor evidence of having had studio labels attached, they have been compiled as a separate series. Around 20 negatives were taken from earlier photographs and c.50 are outdoor (non-studio) portraits, most of which are of wedding groups. There are also a small number of portraits of members of the Armed Forces dating from the Second World War period. Original negative packets with instructions written on them have been kept with 5 of the negatives. Some of the negatives are damaged by mould from being kept in damp storage conditions in the past.
