Photographs, postcards and copies of works of art, 1777 - 1970
Scope and Contents
A description of each photograph is given with people and places identified when known. Where they add significantly to the detail, the contents of inscriptions are quoted. If the information is given in the description, inscriptions are summarised. The names of photographers have been given, if known, and should appear in the originator field of the relevant entry. Where dates are supplied from any source other than inscription or stamp, the note 'Date has been supplied' should appear as well as the dates given.
The photographs have been grouped under approximately 90 subject headings and are in chronological order as far as possible. In moving from a paper to an electronic version of the Forster catalogue, it has been impossible to retain these subject headings perfectly. Some attempt has been made to retain subject headings by placing them within the titles given to photographs. For example, the titles of photograph formerly in Album Five, 'Arles, Aug. 1931' all begin with the keyword 'Arles' followed by a title relevant to the specific photograph being described. In many cases, however, the need for concise description within the title field has made the retention of subject headings impossible by that means.
Apart from EMF/27/68-70 which remain pasted into Album One, and oversize items, the photographs are loose within transparent archival sleeves. They are arranged as nearly as possible in their numbered order, but variation in sleeve and photograph size has necessitated slight displacement in some cases. The sleeve number is given in parentheses at the end of the entry for each photograph. Please cite the sleeve number, as well as the reference number, when requesting a photograph.
