JCW Scene Book 1

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.

Scene Book No. 1

This volume, dating from the 1920s, is extremely damaged, with loose pages and disintegrating spine. Dimensions: 39 x 27 x8. There is an index, also names in red which have been crossed out - possibly these were for earlier productions. Photos are of sets, cloths, the occasional actor/singer/dancer but no information re scenic artists, no dimensions of cloths and no individual dates.
