Photos to be Auctioned

I visited Lyon & Turnbull's saleroom in Edinburgh today to view the items to be sold at tomorrow's auction.  Amongst them, I found two photos by Captain Alfred Buckham, Lots 132 and 133, titled respectively:

'Aerial View of Edinburgh' (the photo above with  biplane in the sky)

'Aerial View of the Forth Bridge' (a similar photo with biplane in  sky)

Both the above are silver gelatin prints, 45.5cm x 37cm, with the title and pencil signature by Alfred Buckham on the mount, framed and glazed.  Each has an estimated auction value of 1,200 to 1,800
