<p>An album containing mounted photographs of various sizes, by various photographers, with either handwritten captions or captions on the prints. The photographs were bought during a tour to Australia and New Zealand, the pictures breaking down into geographical units thus: 1-8 Suez Canal and Aden; 9-127 Australia; 128-135 New Zealand; 136-137 Naples; 138 Group portrait of exhibitors, Melbourne 1888.</p> <p>It seems probable that this album represents the private collection of someone (possibly J.F. Butterworth) who had some professional connection with the Melbourne International Exhibition of 1888, since it includes a group photograph of English exhibitors, and as well as general views of the exhibition buildings, pictures entitled 'Moseley's exhibit' (a Northern-based tailor), and 'Interior of Mr. Goodwood's Office', which would seem to imply a somewhat more specialised interest in the proceedings than mere tourism.</p>
