Most of the subjects are studies of local people outside their houses, in best or working clothes. Several were of private means, but most are local farmers and workpeople. The usual dress for these was:
Men Cap or bowler-hat, jacket, necktie, shirt, waistcoat, corduroy trousers, clogs. Several wore gaiters.
Women Cap or bonnet optional, long dress, apron, clogs.
Children Scaled-down versions of the same dress.
Several details of houses, gardens, gates, roads, pets.
Entries in brackets with dates are from the directories: Bulmer, 1883; Kelly, 1894, 1897, 1910. These are to supplement the labels already on the plates.

The district covered was Irton, Santon, Holmrook, Drigg, and Carleton; also a few in Seascale. Most of the pictures were taken in about 1890-1900. The labels on them are all in the same hand; but the numbers are in a later hand, and several have been changed.
