* The first photo, dated May 12 1930, shows Masefield apparently caught unaware in an old suit, in front of a house, with elucidating text on verso 'John Masefield, whose adventurous career included service as a common sailor and porter in a New York pre-prohibition saloon, and who was today appointed Poet Laureate of England'. The second, dated May 22, 1930, shows Masefield and his daughter Judith feeding their two donkeys on his estate near Oxford, England. The third, dated Jan 6, 1933, shows Mr and Mrs Masefield 'as they arrived on the S.S. Mauretania today' in New York.
