Maurice Barley Mysteries - Nottinghamshire

Professor Maurice Barley (1909-1991) was an authority on English vernacular architecture. We have recently catalogued part of his collection of over 5,000 prints and negatives dating from the 1940s onwards. The images below show buildings in Nottinghamshire, mostly taken in the 1950s.
