Press Cuttings : negatives of photos of early productions

Item type: Press Cuttings
Archive reference: YMP/F/11/20
Date/year: 1951-1963
The archive has not received negative photographs until a most welcome October 2021 donation from the estate of Mr Edward Scurr, who was the first stage manager and continued until 1963.  (The estate also included prints.)
There are several dozen negatives of black and white photos, apparently taken by Mr Scurr.  They include some in-performance images (rather rare at this point) and night-time images.  They are labelled 1954, 1957, 1960, 1963 and another set labelled simply 'Mystery Plays' may be 1951.
There are also scrapbooks and scripts from the estate.
