The collection comprises approximately 535 watercolours, drawings and unfinished works of art, almost all executed by Edwin Young.
Edwin Young (1831-1913) was a competent and prolific Victorian watercolourist - the best of his work being fine examples of the genre.
The collection provides an important source of topographical and social historical content, illustrating Salisbury and its environs from the middle of the 19th century to the period just prior to the First World War
