AC Taylor, Peterborough

Another new entrant for the site discovered from an entry in the exhibition catalogues of the Royal Photographic Society. AC Taylor was an early X Ray practitioner at the Peterborough Infirmary in the 1890s, as well as a member of the Peterborough Photographic Society. It will be interesting to see if any of his photographs turn up today.

Peskett and Dew-Smith

Starting from information about exhibitors gleaned from the catalogues of the Photographic Society of Great Britain, have spent some time today researching and adding details to the site of Elizabeth Peskett and Albert George Dew-Smith, both Cambridge photographers not previously listed. Dew-Smith is particularly interesting as a successful academic and entrepreneur – and several of his portraits are in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery.

Valentine Blanchard Updated

The entries for Valentine Blanchard and his nephew Valentine Louis Blanchard have been re-written and each has been given his own page on the site. Discoveries from Cambridge University Library today include two Cambridge photographers not currently on the site who exhibited at the Photographic Society Annual Exhibitions. Also noted – the frequency with which RH Lord exhibited there
