I found this in a second-hand book shop in Salisbury, Wiltshire. I believe this photo album may have belonged to Hilda Gaisford. She mentions that her great-grandfather built (1857) the Athenaeum theatre in Warminister.
I've added at the bottom of each page a place where notes can be added.
My interest in photographing albums started when I realised that many of the fascinating Victorian and Edwardian Photograph (Portrait) Albums of the mid 1800s and later were being broken up by CDV collectors. You will get an idea of what I mean if you visit http://www.cartedevisite.co.uk REPRODUCTION OF ALBUMS AND RESEARCH VERSIONS FOR STUDY The break-up of these family albums, each one being unique and irreplaceable, seems to me to be a real shame. Using optical scanning, photography and a purpose designed rocking copy stand I am able to faithfully reproduce these treasures of family history. PURCHASE The examples I have on show here will give you an idea of what is possible and the cost. Best wishes Simon
