Photo requests


In 1988, still in the days of paper-based communication, Baines wrote to a number of institutions to source images for The Oxford Companion to Musical Instruments (1992). With this letter from the Bath Abbey Music Society, Baines was sent a set of negatives from which to select the images he wished to use.

This folder contains similar correspondence from a range of organisations, including notes offering him images which he marked on the letters as ‘not used’, and receipts for those photographs he paid to reproduce.
