Collage of orphan photos from a set dated 1958 found in the Lisbon flea market and a 1920s herbarium
(Herbarium Britannicum) discarded by the London Kew Gardens. The title is a tribute to Mary Delany, inventor of
botanical collage (Flora Delanica 1772-1782), and Annie McCall, founder of the Maternity Hospital (1889-1970),
aka Stockwell Studios (1975-2013), where msdm publications were based.
