Scope and content
The original G. Sherriff photographs are a range of flora, people and landscape shots. The reverse of the photo often has the date, location, country. If the photograph is of a plant then the name, number of the plant and location will often be written on the reverse. They are stamped on the reverse as being a 'vivid colour print'. The prints of the digital, exhibition display images, have the photo disk number written on the reverse of the print.
