The owner of this photo, Robert Brook writes: "I have copies of the group pictures taken on board the ships of passengers and BA members, many of whom he travelled with. From setting sail in England to returning there a couple of months later, it appears that he left nothing out, including what he ate, where he visited, and so much more. The journals include copies of his photographs, maps, receipts, menus, itineraries etc." Bob Brook has looked through the two surviving journals of his great grandfather's 1884 trip for Bell Farm references and photos - turns out that information would have been in the third journal which went missing long ago.
