DescriptionPhotographs of the Mason College building and of Mason College students and members of staff, mostly taken during the 1890s. The majority of the photographs in this section consist of sets of prints of photographs taken by Bedford Lemere & Co., London in 1897 depicting exteriors and interiors of the Mason College building with particular emphasis on rooms used for teaching science subjects, and a smaller number of photographs depicting exteriors and interiors of Queen's Hospital and the General Hospital in Birmingham. There are two sets of mounted prints likely to date from around the time the photographs were commissioned, and a set of copies made by the firm in 1955 for the university.

Other photographs primarily consist of portraits of individual members of staff and students, the majority of which take the form of reproductions of photographs printed in the Mason College student magazine, though there are also a small number of photographic prints depicting individual members of staff. In addition, the section contains a small number of twentiech century copies of miscellaneous photographs of the exterior of the Mason College building, and a photographic copy of an illustration drawn at the college's opening ceremony
