Item description for Historic Views of London: From the Collection of B.E.C. Howarth-Loomes by Ann Saunders...
Bernard Howarth-Loomes was an important collector of early photographs and particularly of stereo photography. Throughout his life, he was deeply interested in photography and was especially enthralled by the stereoscopic, three-dimensional process; he collected photographs of all sorts, stereo-cards and photographic equipment. Through his collecting years, he showed his consideration for others, permitting the National Monument Record (NMR) to make copies of those which were relevant to that collection and generously granting reproduction rights. The topographical range of photographs was spread across the British Isles; those chosen for this volume have been confined to the Greater London area and in particular to the City of London and to Westminster. Ann Saunders has added an authoritative introductory text and captions for each of the images included.
