Scope and Contents

Photographs taken by Charles William Hattersley and others, many undated. Most of the photographs measure approximately 100 x 75 mm. There are scenes in Uganda and portraits of personalities connected with Ernest Millar's career. Most of the titles derive from the captions on the reverse of the photographs, presumably written by Millar, some of which include further comments by H.B. Thomas. Nos 1-5, 14 and 21-23 are credited to Hattersley, but in most cases the name of the photographer is not recorded.
