Five loose photographs of other properties. 2 of Fritwell Manor Oxfordshire, restored by Thomas Garner [ of Garner and Stratton ] one interior of Sutton Coldfield [ home of Bidlake ] and a final image of Losely Park.[Guildford]. These last images rather creased but locations noted on verso which gives a clue to possible nature of this album. These photographs possibly could be a reference set from the office of either Arnold Bidlake Mitchell, Architect and Surveyor & Arts and Crafts Architect and one time assistant to Ernest George and Harold Peto. Alternatively it may relate to the office of Ernest George and Peto or indeed Thomas Gardner. Folio sized Album partially disbound, no upper board or spines, mounts browned and worn at edges but photographic images are very good and sharp.
