Description General Collection. Duchal Photograph Albums

Collection General Collection. Photograph Albums.

Catalogue Number 551 87/1

Category All Other

Scope and Content A group of 13 photograph albums nearly all of which come from one source - a family who took holidays following country pursuits in familiar places. These include the west coast of Scotland (many boating and motoring tours), Elie (where a tennis lawn south of Bank Street was a favourite venue), Duchal House in Renfrewshire (which for a while was owned by G. Wallace who features in many pictures), Auchans in Ayrshire, Heathfield in Dunbartonshire, Gask in Perthshire and visits to several country houses. Some of these remain unidentified: could one be Dalnottar House in Old Kilpatrick (the address in the oldest album which belonged to Annie Henderson and L. D. Henderson, who features much in this series)? The other two albums belong to the Keays (276, mostly in the British colonies) and the Ewens (277, who seem to have lived in Castle Douglas but visited family in Aberdeenshire. The only connection so far traced between these two and the other eleven albums is in the few biro-written names of family relations added later.

Access Conditions Open access.

All Other PA 283 PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM 283: L D HENDERSON'S ALBUM. Brown leatherette hard-backed book titled 'Album' on the front cover, label inside the back cover says 'The Victorian Album no S500, Johnson, London'. The 36 white pages are numbered 1-72, the photographs are all captioned by the photographer, L D Henderson. The subjects are mainly people, as well as the landscapes and buildings of the places he visited. In addition to holidays and trips taken while on leave, the images document L D Henderson's career in the army, including his experience of the First World War. While these images are mainly personal, some arguably have more of a historicial significance, as Henderson has captured moments such as the arrival of the first tank into Egypt and troops making their way to Galipoli. Beginning in Alexandria, Egypt in 1896, before moving to Kilcreggan Army Camp in Scotland in 1902, the photographs show a number of locations from around the world, particularly Alexandria, where L D Henderson was stationed from 1915-1917, as well Palestine and India, where he remained for the remainder of the war. Having returned to Scotland in 1920, the album ends with a visit to Beaulieu Castle in Hampshire during the same year. 1897 Batch Level
