windmills Windmill photos by Alan Derwent Caston

I have been sent some quite spectacular images of windmills, taken by Alan Derwent Caston, probably in the 1930s. The images are unlabelled, and since they come from negatives, some may have been reversed. I've only so far identified some of them - identifications of the others are most welcome. Alan lived in Ilford, and Essex mills certainly feature in the selection.

To see the images please go to the Caston Collection page. My thanks to Alan's daughter Stella, who sent me the images.

Update:[3/4/10] I have received a number of further batches from this collection as they have been found. My error - these are mostly being scanned from negatives, not slides, but there are also now a few lower quality images which have come from prints. There are now 47 images in total.
