This is a modern print made at NLW from the original negative.


The original negative was found with a letter dated 1st Aug 1949 on headed notepaper from the T&GWU Convalescent Home "Branksome", St Johns Road, Buxton. The letter reads "Dear Bro Edwards, I am enclosing herewith a picture and negative. These are for the members of the comittee who paid a visit on Tues 26th July. Yours faithfully, M Gregory." Bro Edwards is believed to be Huw T Edwards.


The premises are now a care home.
