    Many of the photographs were identified on the reverse in Hudson Fysh's hand and often difficult to decipher. Some photographs and negatives were unidentified and these were sorted, titled and arranged by the cataloguer. Note there may be misidentifications of the same. Some published material transferred to Ephemera. Some manuscript material transferred to Sir Hudson Fysh - Papers, ca.1817-1974. (Sept 2005-Apr 2006)
