Dry plate negatives…

Heres a collection of dry plate negatives that I recently purchased.

The only info I have is from the seller. “Thank you for your purchase. I am so glad this set of negative is going to a good home. Also, I would like to let you know about where the negatives came from. I was living in The Beeches, Didsbury, Manchester for a long while, 25 years ago. My neighbour was a 90+ years old lovely eccentric lady call Liz that I got friendly with. She lived on her own with lots of cats, her husband died during the war and never married. Before I moved up to Scotland, she gave me a box of things. This set in amongst it. She said that was her childhood. I didn’t have a chance to look though it, and to find out more about the area they were taken. Two weeks later I phoned Liz. It was too late according to another neighbour, she died in her sleep a week after I left. I am so pleased it is going back to Manchester”

I’m glad I’m able to keep these negatives together. What do you think?

These two plates below were a seperate purchase, I love the look of them as they hint to the hobbyist photographer at home with the makeshift backdrop in this one…
