Come And Get It! (UPDATED 27th June 2022)

Royale Studio - Solo Sailor in the Rigging 1

My on-going revision of the 2010 series of mitchmen articles about the images of the vintage, British 'Royale Studio' continues with the addition of 'Bullies' and a separate feature on the Royale model, David Reid. 

I'm adding more images and commentary to the original articles and some completely new sets that were left out first time round. 

As an adjunct to this process I am gradually making my entire Royale collection available to mitchmen readers through the mitchmen Royale Studio Open Archive.

If you have images of your own to add or link in I would be glad to hear from you too. You can contact me via comments most easily but only an e-mail via my profile page will enable me to message you back. 

GUYS IN UNIFORM POSTS

You can also read posts about 'Guys in Uniform' Studio, a direct descendent of Royale, here at mitchmen.
(none of them have been revised or archived yet)

I've deliberately included this nice torso image with the 'Guys In Uniform' logo in the corner. Many of their images circulate with the tag 'MIU' (men in uniform) presumably because someone didn't know 'Guys' was the real ID and thought 'Men' sounded better. Sadly both options are virtually useless for internet search purposes, being too commonplace as expressions, so maybe it's just as well that GIU is often confused with Royale Studio, even though they were 10 years apart.

The mitchmen GIU series starts at

Guys In Uniform 1 - Cane Stripes (none revised yet)

Thank you for doing this. So sad that they are difficult to find online today.
