Knowing the good fellow that you are, you will be scanning and uploading the images of course.
I think best thing is for everyone else to keep off so that the price stays low for you, you saw them first.

There's two bidding already and I know the chance is slight, but maybe it's somebody on here so I don't want to bid against them.

Either that or contact the buyer and see if they'd be willing to sell you prints...

Just seen the photos on ebay, which reminded me that a cople from Leeds had a house (second home) in our street. He had loads of slate quarry and railway photos. He died at the age of 54 a few years ago and his wife moved to York somewhere. I had some photocopied prints off him of Nantlle quarries. but not good quality. It might possibly his family having a sale.
