Damian great to hear from you. You have reached "Team Ifor Thomas of Guildford" ( ? Where to begin.....) The Hay-on-Wye Festival ended here yesterday so we are on life support right now - detox etc. Phone 01497 821132 & talk to Jack who was a student of Ifor at the same time as Tessa Traeger, John Hedgecoe, Adam Wolfit etc. Jack set up and ran Internationally acclaimed Schools of Photography at Derby & Manchester & trianed Martin Parr & many household names. You need to talk to him about Photographic Education at the period you are researching. What exactly are you working on with all this?  Best, Rita
