New discovery: The Vernon Lamb Archive, Matlock & District 1910-15

The Vernon Lamb Archive is a collection of new photographs, created between 2013 and 2014 from the original negatives (plates) by Robert White of Hertfordshire. The original collection began about 1910 when Vernon Lamb arrived in Matlock and stopped in 1915 after he joined the Army. However, it is almost certain that all the non army images were taken between 1910 and 1914, whereas the pictures of soldiers were taken between 1914 and 1915.

Read more about the history of the archive, how it was digitised and see the images that have been copied, together with historical research notes here: here: http://www.andrewsgen.com/matlock/pix/vl_archive/index.htm

The archives consists of around 1000 half-plate negatives of which only a selection of the more interesting ones have been copied.
