James Gardiner has successfully put together photographSeand letters taken and written by Montague Glover spanning a period of 32 years. A period in which people seemed to accept individualSeand their foibles, when time seemed to have stopped, and also when life seemed simpler.

Montague Glover waSean architect, and army officer with a distinguished service record from the First World War, and also a homosexual. The photographs in the book illustrate the three great obsessions of his life:
