Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Tempe: view of valley".
Notes A commercial image from the English Photographic Company. Latest date based on figure in the 1911 book by Stobart, The Glory that was Greece. However, numerous images from the English Photographic Company donated via Shirley Atchley were catalogued from SPHS 8943 to 9256 appearing in the 1913 slide catalogue in the Journal of Hellenic Studies. This is he same photograph as BSA SPHS 01/5328.C1117, a negative that was part of Shirley Atchley's 1921 donation to the SPHS. The photographer, therefore, is probably Atchley.
