One of these days I will write a biographical post about the photographer Horace Roye (1906 – 2002). Roye set up the Camera Studies Club during the war. In 1954 he teamed up with a gentleman called Vala and developed The Roye-Vala 3-D Process, with which they had some success. 3-D was all the rage back then. Besides producing a 3-D book about Bush-babies, The Camera Studies Club published a Stereo-glamour series. Farley Castle, Berkshire, provided settings for some of the pictures taken for these books. The castle was home to the adventurer and popular author F.A. Mitchell-Hedges who was the owner of the crystal “Skull of Doom”, supposedly found in a collapsed altar inside a temple in Lubaantun, in British Honduras, now Belize. Mitchell-Hedges and Roye were friends.
