Islands, 1908 - 1910

Reference Code: GBR/3437/AJBW/3/26
Scope and Contents The thematic reach of this group, designated as 'Islands' before the time of its accession to the archives, is actually very mixed in topic. The core of the images is undoubtedly a collection of photographs designated as 'Islands' in their theme by AJBW himself. However, there are also images of the British School at Athens tennis courts, an excavation site pre WWI with an Edwardian achaeologist overseeing Greek workmen, a cutting that reveals possibly a Mycenaean tomb, a young Greek? woman...

Pelops Cruise, 1903

Reference Code: GBR/3437/AJBW/3/7
Scope and Contents This large album was assembled by Wace scrapbook style, with a mixture of print size and print types (gelatin silver and cyanotypes) of the 'Pelops' Aegean cruise in 1903. It has a much more informal feel than the previous two albums of the same cruise, which carefully document the progress of the cruise and the archaeological sites visited in order of the original itinerary. This is more of a joyous riot of memories of an extremely happy time when Wace was 24 and very new to travelling...
