Description

An album of 37 leaves with both sides and the end covers used to display 231 photographs on 76 pages. The prints are mostly of the building in 1975 before renovations took place but also include some colour pictures of the wall paintings on the west end and the stained glass. On the last page are three copies of older prints showing the demolished Georgian house. There are also four pictures of windows in the parish churches of Colworth and Little Staughton.

THIS ALBUM IS IN A FRAGILE CONDITION AS MANY OF THE PRINTS ARE DETACHED FROM THE PAGE OR VERY LOOSE AND REPEAT HANDLING WILL CAUSE THEM TO DETACH. THE ALBUM IS THEREFORE AT PRESENT UNSUITABLE FOR PUBLIC VIEWING DUE TO THE DANGER OF PRINTS BEING LOST. Those prints which are presently loose have their catalogued number written on the reverse.

Some of the pages were previously numbered in the outer top corner, this scheme did not include all the pages and thus a new numbering scheme was used. These numbers are written in the bottom outer corner as with other albums in this series
