Commonwealth in Focus Slides

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011GGG

Views in Australia, Egypt, Aden, Asia and other places chiefly circa 1908-1915

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011B(LS)
Scope and Contents The collection was originally housed in seven boxes, four of which were specially made with individual slots for slides.
