Photograph Album (TP/11/2)
Thomas Pitfield was a man of many talents: he was a composer, artist, craftsman and poet. Pitfield was a student and later a professor of the Royal Manchester College of Music. He loved nature and was a vegetarian; as we can see from his photograph album he was also very fond of dogs.
The above picture shows a pencil drawing by Pitfield of a sleeping spaniel and family photographs of his wife, Alice, and their pet spaniels. The photograph album forms part of the Thomas Pitfield collection which is kept at the RNCM Archives.
