Victorian & Edwardian Photographers

The information below details dates during which some of the early Victorian & Edwardian photographers worked in the Chester & North East Wales area. The information has been extracted from local commercial directories such as Pigot's, Whites & Kelly's.

I find the information useful in the approximate dating of both Carte de Visite and Cabinet photographs of the period. Used in conjunction with Roger Vaughan's excellent site for dating old photos you might just be able to make sense of some of those old photos for which you have no information.
