Collection Information

From an album entitled Sketches, C.W. Cole. We believe some of these sketches were produced for The Graphic Magazine 1884-1885. Another sketchbook by the artist is in the collection of the National Library of Ireland produced when the artist accompanied HRH the Duke of Edinburgh on his "Relief of Irish Distress" tour of the west of Ireland in 1880.
