These images are from a photograph album which was kept by Frederick Walter Rogers (1896 – 1971), who was the son of Harry Rogers, Coldstream Estate manager for the period these photographs were taken.
Not only does the album feature images of normal life on the Coldstream Estate in the 1910s, but it also contains
photographs from Frederick’s experiences during the First World War (click to read), as well as photos from his family’s ancestral home in England.
