WILLIAMS, H. A., Photographic Artist.
Positive print on glass of a seated woman holding a child, within a shaped mount, aperture size c.7 x. 9 cms., some added colour, within a moulded frame, size 18 x 20 cms.

The lower corner of the glass plate has been broken into two sections and are retained by the mount.

*It is unusual for photographs to be printed upon glass but equally interesting is the printed advertisement on the reverse of the frame, used to paste over the back of the mount. This is torn around the edges, affecting some of the print, but most is untouched and reads : H.A.
