TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs The Swan Engraving Company
Date21 March 1904
DescriptionHarrison enquires as to the best kind of reproduction for a photogravure of a recently painted portrait by Sir George Reid of Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt], explaining that they wish to have a copy for each subscriber, perhaps 12 x 10, and asking for an estimate for 200 copies. He also asks if they might be able to photograph it before the end of next week. It is located at Miss Brackenbury's studio, and so they will need to communicate with her to arrange a convenient time to photograph it.
