The West Riding Asylum, Menston, Yorkshire. 1901

It’s not often I re-blog about “proper” work related topics but I thought I’d share this image from an item we recently digitised at the John Rylands Library.

A fully detailed blog post by Anne Anderton can be found at the John Rylands Library Special Collections blog. Go take a look.

I always appreciate a Daylight Studio shot…. check this one out! I’m sure thats my studio camera!

All the images can be seen here in Luna along with a “Bookreader” online viewer – showing the item cover to cover. The other images are well worth a look.
