Archival History

The collection was given to the NMR in 1999 by the Tolsey Museum Committee. The collection was found in a barn in Burford, Oxfordshire in 1998 and was donated to the museum which is in Burford.

It seems likely that the negatives were once in the possession of Sir Edward Boyle (1848/9-1909) and his son Sir Edward Boyle (1878-1945) who were owners of Ockham House.
