Sir David Russell Photographic CollectionRecord level Collection
Sir David Russell was a keen photographer. His personal photographs as included in his larger manuscript collection (ms-38515) date from ca.1890 to 1955. These photographic holdings relate principally to his personal life. Principal amongst these are images of family life, mostly centred around the family home of Silverburn House, as well as family holidays, relating to holidays within Scotland, most especially Mull and Iona in the 1930s. During these family holidays, Russell also took a number of scenic photographs.
Russell also photographed extensively during his visits to the Walker Trust archaeological excavations in Istanbul (Turkey) in the 1935-1938 period.
