Correspondence with F.L. Emanuel

Scope and Content

Correspondence with Frank L. Emanuel (1865-1948), artist and writer, relating to discussion of drawings by Emanuel which are published in the Manchester Guardian, with reference to payment, and to printing, and accompanied by related internal memoranda. There is discussion of the impact of photography on the use of drawings in the paper, and of the suggestion that Emanuel be employed to produce portraits, as drawings are no longer required for other subjects.

There is also reference to a request by Emanuel to be employed as an art critic by the Manchester Guardian, and a request for clarification of a letter by Emanuel with suggestions for a formal garden on the approach to the Exchange Station, [Manchester].
