Title: A.J.Horne's photograph album
Item Name: Local Landscape
Maker: Horne, A.J. (Mr.)

Description:

Album of small Box Brownie type photographs of various East Riding locations, as well as some from other areas in Yorkshire / Lincolnshire. The subjects are mainly landscapes or buildings, but some of wild flowers as well (a subject the artist was especially keen on). The photographs are glued to thin sheets of card. About 330 images in all. Taken by the artist Arthur James Horne. The pages / images have handwritten captions. A fold out section of Ordnance Survey map pasted to the inside back cover is headed 'Routes traversed 1927-1939.' Buff board covers, edged in black, with artist's initials stencilled on in bottom right corner and titled 'Photographs' on front cover. Also contains two loose A5 black/white photographs, one of a Humber keel on the river Hull and one of a steam train in Drewton Dale. See also BAG 2019.1 - watercolour sketch books. These photographs would have been used as a source for many of Horne's watercolours.
