Case Study

The Bexley Heritage Trust recently unearthed a staggering 14,000 glass lantern slides collected and captured by its former resident Arthur Boswell. These pictures were compiled throughout the course of Boswell’s lifetime from 1880 to 1966. Not only do they reveal pictures of the local Bexley area taken by Boswell, but Boswell also bought many international images from other collectors and lantern slide makers. These additional international images are very diverse and the locations range from the plains of Africa to the fjords of Norway and cities across Italy.

Max was tasked with the digitisation of the glass slides and then the production of large format prints for the exhibition ‘Illuminated World’ hosted at Hall Place, a Grade 1 listed Tudor country house situated in Bexley.
