Index of MS Museum 185

H. M. J. UNDERHILL's album of photographs of windmills

there are 149 photographs of windmills and 8 of watermills; 2 self-portraits; & a group of 50 unrelated holiday photographs, some with children

pages: blank/endpaper recto + self-portraits & intro note + 39 pp windmills + 2 pp watermills + blank verso + leaflet re Oldland Mill, Sussex + blank verso + 5 further blank pp + 12 pp holiday photos + blank/endpaper verso

probably compiled about 1913; about half the photos are by Underhill, taken 1901-13 mostly 1907, mostly in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties, with also a group taken in Somerset in 1907; the holiday photos were taken 1908-09 in the Lyme Regis area of Dorset & Devon, mostly Beer; some of the other photos & postcards will be earlier; the Lancashire photos by Crabtree are c.1897

the item tipped in at p.45, & some of the loose enclosures, post-date Underhill (who died in 1920) & appear to have been added in the Museum

indexed items are photos of windmills unless otherwise indicated; numbers are pages; there may be several photos on the page & in some cases also more than one mill per place; items in square brackets are proposed identifications of unidentified mills
