The library at Lyndon Hall has a leather bound volumn of Crimean War (1853-1856) photographs. If you are interested in learning a little more about the Crimean war click here for the Wikipedia article

The first photograph in the collection is by Roger Fenton, who is well known for his historic Crimean War photographs and depicts:-

"The War Council's commanders-in-chief of the Allies, Lord Raglan (Britain), Omar Pasha (Ottoman Empire) and General Pelisier (France) hold a meeting, 1855. Raglan's role in the battles of Balaklava and Inkerman (including the ill-fated Charge of the Light Brigade) ensured him both a baronetcy and a prominent place in history. He died while still serving in Crimea"
The description above comes from the Daily Telegraph web site (May 2014).

We know very little else about this album and if there is anyone reading this who can throw any light on these photographs we would be delighted to hear from them.
