The archive also contains a large number of photographs, both prints, negatives and transparencies — in black & white and in colour — belonging to W.Y. Adams, J.A. Alexander, C.M. Daniels, Mr Moore, the RAF, I.E.S. Edwards, Laurence Kirwan, Rosalind Hawkes, Brian Haycock, Mr Gentle and Jean-Pierre Greenlaw, spanning the years from the 1930s until the 1980s. Many are an invaluable record of sites long since destroyed, particularly those of sites in the region of Lake Nubia/Nasser and at Suakin.
It also holds a large number of plans and elevations of houses at Suakin by Greenlaw, papers of Laurence Kirwan and others, maps, aerial photographs and satellite images.
All are xlsx spreadsheets. Those without links are yet to be prepared.
