Broughton House Photographic Collection

Hornel purchased Broughton house in 1901 and asked his friend, architect John Keppie, to design a studio. This was complete in 1902.

The studio adjoined the coach house and had large doors directly into the garden. Visitors could therefore access the space without having to walk through the house.

Hornel was a painter, but this studio is where he took hundreds of photographs.
