[Invitation & 15 vintage photos] Delightful record of a 1950 aristocratic English garden party at Harewood House in Yorkshire. Fine oblong blue vinyl photo album with printed invitation (accomplished in manuscript to 'Miss L Cullingworth and Mr L Atkinson') mounted on the verso of the first leaf and 15 large format photographs (24x19cm) with the stamp of the Yorkshire Post newspaper to the verso. Beginning with two collective picture of the guests arranged before the north front of Harewood followed by a series of more intimate shots of guests being greeted by the Earl of Harewood and his newly married first wife, the Viennese concert pianist Marion Stein with their corgi dogs in attendance. Particularly entrancing are the shots of the guests wearing their fifties finery as they socialised on the south terrace with the Wharfedale landscape glimpsed beyond. After their divorce Stein married the liberal politician Jeremy Thorpe. Lascelles is remembered for his imaginative patronage of the arts, in particular Benjamin Britten and the English Opera Group.
