commercial success coincided with the development of half-tone
printing so that many of his images appeared in the new illustrated
magazines such as The Throne or Country Life.
glass negatives from the Lafayette studios were rescued by
Terry Thurston in 1968 when he was instructed to put them
in a skip before the property was redeveloped. He stored them
at Pinewood Studios where he worked. In 1988 they were rediscovered
and Pinewood offered them to the Victoria and Albert Museum
and the National Portrait Gallery. 30,000 negatives came to
the V&A Picture Library and the rest, mostly post-1925,
went to the National Portrait Gallery.
