Important Information




Larger format are generally 4¼ in x 3¼ in, medium format 2¼ in x 3¼ in. Each envelope often containing 2 or more including non-glass examples, has details of company, loco, location and date annotated. This is indexed against registers. Lots show a brief description but importantly the negative numbers which can be crossed referenced with the registers which are available on our website to view or download. 

The 35mm negatives do have gaps within the numbering and as with many photographers, multiple shots of the same subject, many with subtle differences, are contained within lots. Therefore, the negative numbers shown in each lot will have the approximate quantity noted that are within a range in the register. 

Note that in all cases and despite due diligence, the auctioneer cannot guarantee the cross referencing, nor the actual number of negatives stated. 

Generally, each lot has only a sample illustrated, these have been scanned at very low resolution and reduced quality, not only to protect copyright for the buyers, but to improve viewing download time from the website.

Although the entire collection is being sold with copyright, it is known that many have been published and a number are destined to be published in the future. 

Lots 1 to lot 325 were taken by H.C. Casserley, lots 326 to 400 were taken by R.M. Casserley.
