Marsh Brothers 1875.

A fine photograph album of the Thames between Oxford and Richmond. Oblong folio. 240 x 290mm. Bound in red morocco, ruled and decorated in gilt and blind, with gilt titles to the upper cover. All edges gilt. The album opens with a hand drawn and illuminated insignia, "P.W.M.A", followed by 39 mounted albumen print views, each titled in coloured ink and surrounded by a decorative border. Blindstamp of Marsh Bros. Henley On Thames to each photograph. Caption to final leaf in purple ink, "borders desigined & drawn by WW 1875".

The Marsh Brothers, who operated from Hart Street in Henley on Thames between 1869 and 1903, were among Henley's first photographers.
As well as serving the community by producing carte de viste portraits for local families, they were famous for the production of elaborate photograph albums of Thames Scenery, such as the present example. These contained a varying number of views, and were sometimes finely bound with hand-decorated borders to the photographs, as here.
They are now rarely encountered. There is one example on the River And Rowing Museum, containing 20 photographs, and similarly decorated.
