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.
