Photographs (Photograph Archives).
Only one of the photographs (not in a case) is labeled as J.C. Brayley's work; it was taken at his studio in Bath, which he only occupied between 1858 and 1860. No photographer's name appears on the other two photographs (even inside the preserver bundle), but it appears the other two are the work of (a) photographer(s) other than J.C. Brayley.
