The Graystone Bird Collection: Graystone Bird was a professional photographer based in Bath, in the south west of England. He took thousands of photographs which he printed and sold as glass magic lantern projection slides. His slides are now very rare and our archive includes the largest known collection of Graystone Bird slides in the world. Graystone specialised in particular themes ….. children; fishermen; rural scenes and hymn illustrations and was recognised as being one of the finest Victorian photographers. Indeed, he won hundreds of awards for his photography. That was over one hundred years ago! Now, a new generation can appreciate his wonderful photographs. We are sure you will agree with us that his reputation and accolades were well deserved.
