In about 1970 David Edwards let me have a box of glass plate negatives stored in his family's garage in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. I promised to make copies of the photos. It's taken a long time but here are some of the promised photos.

The photos were evidently taken by a well to do family in the early years of the 20th century.
Like the photo above many were clearly taken in India. Others show scenes from Italy and the Middle East. There are lots of of photos of trains, boats and even the odd very early plane. Jonathan Brind, May 2008.
