Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
A Victorian album showing local people, ranging from the local barber to policeman, dressed in their Sunday best, and local scenes in Bala and Llanuwchllyn around the 1860s will be up for auction. Found in a lady's attic in Shropshire, the images are marked as taken by a local photographer - Edward Williams - although some of the prints note he was based in Bala, whilst others state his studio was in Llanrwst.
The album will be auctioned off at Mullock's Ltd in Church Stretton, Shropshire, on 28 June, with an estimate of around £500. Details can be found here.
