Four Photograph Albums


Date: c.1929 - 1934

Four volumes containing monochrome photographs of English Cathedrals. Photographs are inserted loose into each album page and a caption written underneath. Cathedrals shown are Beverley Minster, Lichfield, Salisbury, Wells, Winchester, Ely, Liverpool, Chester, Durham and Norwich. On the inside of the rear board of the first volume is a study of Wenlock Abbey – this has been sellotaped in along one edge. Not dated however a couple of captions would seem to indicate the photographs were taken in the period 1929 to 1934. Interestingly, the fourth volume also contains some colour photographs dated 1987 and it would appear that someone else decided to continue the original photographer’s work. Exeter and Canterbury Cathedrals are in colour and dated 1987. Photographer(s) not known. 164 photographs in black & white (plus extra of Wenlock) and 15 later photographs in colour. Cloth bound hardback albums each of uniform size 11 x 7.25 in. approx. Twelve double side leaves per album – the last album has three empty leaves. Further images of these albums can be found here at my website. An interesting collection in good, clean collectable condition.
