S.W. Colyer, Photographer.

While on a short holiday on Exmoor, I came across a book by photographer S.W. Colyer called Lorna Doone Country. Published in 1947.

I have done an online search about Mr. Colyer and I found a list of other books such as; Cotswold Country, Unspoilt Dorset, Edinburgh, Shakespearse,s Country, and The Charm Of The English Lakes all published around 1930,s to 1940,s, but I cannot find any information about the photographer himself, or any technical details.

All the photos in the book are square, so he may have used a camera of the Rolleiflex type and the skies are well produced in monochrome.

Does anyone know any information about S.W. Colyer?
