Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

The individual slides have, as far as possible, been organised into the order they were taken within each of the films. As KW seems to have photographed some localities on more than one occasion no attempt has been made to place the films themselves in the order they were taken. Identification of the films was attempted by reference to the characteristics placed by the processing house on each mount eg red or black lettering, size of font etc.

A small number of these images were reproduced in an article in 'Anglo Welsh Review' vol 18, no 42 (Feb 1970). The article appears to form the basis for the chapters on his visit to Patagonia in 'A Wider Sky.' (Gomer, 1991)
