John Gray Photo Collection

We are grateful to John Gray for donating these images to the Strand Archive. We were able to produce prints from the original negatives so John was able to see these images for the first time since taking them in 1956.
The Light Console from Her Majesty's Theatre is in the collection of former operator Greg Hamlin (see Nick Hunt's excellent research pages for more information)
