Biographical history

Archival history

It looks as if the photos were given to Trevor Jephcott, a horticulturist who may have been a member of the Scottish Rock Garden Club. Jephcott died in 1993, and the photos were passed to his daughter Susan Bains in 2017 after the death of his widow. She donated them to RBGE in January 2018.

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer
