Strelley, June 1st 1899
Today, with new camera on-board, have to go over to Spring Wood in Strelley to select the trees for felling for the Squire.
While, there took the opportunity to try my new Henry Clay 4 x 5 Regular Camera and get a fine view of Strelley Hall, built in 1860. The Squire, Thomas L. K. Edge, can be seen in his gig going to Nottingham. Towards the church the Groom and gardener can be seen.
Another fine view, taken with the new camera, showing the church and a lad on his fathers cart. Returned home for supper and to develop the rest of my exposed plates, a good day.
