Papers of Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988)
General correspondence and related papers
- TGA 929/4/1/1-11 seem to be pages from a notebook. The labels on the back of each picture do not seem to relate to the picture on the front and so may have originally referred to a picture which they were facing. The pictures originally seem to have been in the book in chronological order.
TGA 929/4/1/12-14 have all been mounted on paper, as if for display
