JC Williamson Scene Books

Between 2014–2016, THA undertook a program of digitization of Scene Books from the JC Williamson collection held by Scenic Studios, Preston. The collection comprises thousands of images of JCW sets, backdrops, scenic details, lighting rigs etc. stretching back to the end of the nineteenth century.

The collection will eventually comprise 10 digitized volumes, and will be made available to the public as the work is completed.
