The photographs occupy 28 pages of an album; plates 21-27, 30-31 and 32-34 each occupy one page. There are a number of blank pages at the back. Most of the prints have brief captions, which have been used as titles and have been recorded as found. They are not always reliable: see, e.g., plates 10 and 15.
