||One small black photograph album with "Photographs" written on the front cover. This is a Fred Stacey album. Album has 63 photographs, some are loose and two have several negatives behind them, some have descriptions and/or names on them. The page and photograph numbers below are the same as the captions on the images.
Loose with the album are two envelopes; one has 44 snapshots, some with "The Den" on the back, plus 2 laser prints; the other has one laser print and 109 photographs. Both envelopes have notes on both the fronts and the backs of them, made by a child of Fred Stacey [see family tree at back of book]. After careful sorting out, there is no reason to keep the two lots separate, but they will be catalogued individually.
Images are in the same order as the descriptions below and captioned with catalogue number.page number-photograph number.
