Description PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM NO. 94: THE STRANG COLLECTION, "ACROSS THE DISTANCE", cf PAs 87, 88, 89, 92 and 93. Hard backed album with green cloth cover, labelled inside back cover 'The Temple Album no S1626, W. Johnson & Sons, Makers, London' Cardboard pages, c.1905. Inscribed "We stand with the distance between us/ The distance that makes no bar/ And wait for the word of greeting/ That comes to each from afar/ And the thoughts that from one to the other/ As swift as an arrow darts/ Flows clear as a crystal ripple/ O'er the golden sands of our hearts." Mostly racecourse views, with crowd scenes, probably at Musselburgh - could this relate to Strang, the Pioneer of 1d points ? Clues include the names of bookies - Jim Bird, John Gorman - a tram labelled Pilrig, P.O., Salisbury Place and Churchill, a car no. S134 and people swimming off a timber tower wearing very unbecoming bathing suits. Also souvenir pictures of people, some with Edinburgh settings.
