Ely photographer missionary in India

Just heard from Mike Petty who passed on a letter he had received several years ago seeking information about one Frederick William Savidge. This marries up with a carte de visite by photographer FW Savidge from Ely, about whom we had so far dicovered nothing. The information from Mike has enabled us to discover that Frederick, born in Stretham, practiced briefly as a photographer in the High Street at Ely, but was a schoolteacher who then became a pioneering missionary in India. His entry on the site has now been updated. Also added in the last few days, Norfolk photographer Olive Edis, who photographed Cambridge subjects and exhibited in Cambridge.   Also discovered this week a sister site for Derbyshire photographers – now added to the Links and References page.
