Hi Doorstop, I seen that documentary about her, it was fascinating
10,000??? there were 1000s more
She had umpteen storage lockers full of boxes etc loaded with photo and negs
Some buyers bought some and sold them on, they are kicking themselves as the value of her work has rocketed

I have the TV programme on my hard drive recorder, thats one I wont delete, perhaps its on Utube

It was closer to 100,000 and the guy who bought them is now tied up in litigation as he is not the copyright holder. Some ambulance chasing lawyer managed to track down a first cousin once removed who is the heir apparent. You can guess the scumbag lawyers motive and its probably north of 40%
