In 2017 a collection of glass plate negatives were acquired... These photos show the plates as they arrived, before sorting and conservation.

The negatives had been put in a box, stored in a shed and needed immediate archival care and attention. A few plates were unfortunately cracked and some were damaged by previous damp conditions. Initial researches did indeed prove that this collection were some of Little's original glass plates, they were 6.5" x 4.75" in size - a format known as 'half plate'. Each negative was carefully cleaned and then placed in archival storage bags.
