A number are trimmed photograph postcards (popular from c1900) with handwriting on the reverse.

Wood, Day and Electric Light Studios, Edgewear Road and Bishop's Road, London; Hellis and Sons, London; J. Cruickshank Taylor and Sons, Newgate Stree, London; and Hellis and Sons, London. The costumes suggest that the photographs date from c1880 to the Edwardian period, but are not necessarily in chronological order.
In a decorative full leather binding with lovely colour, with gilt edges and decorative endpapers. Externally, only minor shelfwear. Rear half of clasp missing. Internally, firmly bound and generally bright, with the odd handling mark and occasional light spot. A few small closed tears to slots. A lovely item.
