Trees and Shrubs from Kew Gardens and elsewhere in Surrey

Surrey c.1920

42 b/w photographs slipped into grey mount boards with white boarder + corresponding annotation page for each image. Bound in long 4to red cloth with white hand written title on the spine, reads 'vol xxv trees and shrubs'. Scattered foxing to the annotation pages, all images are very bright. Around half of the images are taken at Kew, others taken elsewhere in Surrey including Reigate and Redhill. All annotations are dated with the location. All varieties of tree and shrub are named, in some cases with a more detailed description. There are also comments made on light, focus and the challenges of film development. A fascinating item. Exceptionally valuable for showing the trees and their condition and levels of maturity at Kew Gardens and other Surrey locations.
