This is an album of family “snaps” possibly belonging to the family of Sir Henry Proctor (1866 to 1928). Some are clearly taken in the UK and others show domestic life in India in the late 1890s through the early 1900s. The collection includes some unique material relating to the official opening of the Guzerat Railway, and also contains images of the engines and stations, and pictures of the construction process of the line.

Henry Edward Edleston Procter, born 13 April 1866, died 11 July 1928. He was the son of Charles Edward Proctor (1834 to 1873) a solicitor in Macclesfield and Ellen Livesey (about 1837 to 1882) of Fairfield, West Derby, Liverpool. He married his wife Helen Matilda Freeman (17 April 1877 to 5 July 1950) in Bombay on 23 February 1897. They had three children Margaret Helen, Katherine Joyce, and Arthur Francis.

Henry became a knight and a Companion of the British Empire in 1911 when serving as a Member of the Council of the Governor of Bombay for making Laws and Regulations. He was later President of the YMCA.
