Scope and Content

Quarter plate (4.25"x3.25") size studio portraits of individual sitters and small groups, labelled or etched with studio numbers and surnames. The sequences of studio numbers run 1-200 (mostly unnamed), a1-1000 and b1-700. These are followed by c.25 negatives with missing or illegible studio numbers that stylistically and date-wise belong to this group. Around 425 negatives were taken from earlier photographs, in may cases from Bagshaw's own very early portrait work. Approximately 30 negatives are of non-portrait subjects and c.60 are outdoor (non-studio) portraits.
