A typical caption is '4912 "Berrington Hall" Penzance' but about half of them have added detail, not least the date (all 1935 to 1937). The covers are a little bowed, but essentially the album and its contents are in fine condition. Offered together with a copy of 'The Early Years of Western Region Steam - an Album of P.M. Alexander's Photographs' by P.B. Whitehouse (Wild Swan, 1983). The contents of the album complement nicely the material in the book, which is mainly from 1948 to 1952.
