Name:  ALBONE, Ernest     b: 4/12/1883   d:
Address: 12 High Street, St Neots.
Working Dates: c. 1924-40
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Albone used a hand embossing press to add his details to postcard sized prints - the text reading "E.Albone The Studio St Neots" - see below example portrait of a teenaged girl from the author's collection, below which is an enhanced detail of the embossing from the lower rh corner of the photograph.
References: Kelly's Directory of Huntingdonshire 1924, 1928, 1931, 1936, 1940. The CALM catalogue of the Cambridgeshire Archives shows photographs by Albone dating from 1918 and 1938. Albone appears to be a common name in the Biggleswade area, making it difficult to pick up a death date. The 1911 Census shows an Ernest Albone b. c.1884, a photographer and picture framer, as a visitor at an address in Shortmead St Biggleswade. In the 1939 Register Ernest d.o.b. 4/12/1883 was listed as a photographer at 12 High Street, St Neots, where he was living with his wife Hilda E Albone b: 25/4/1883.

ALLEN, Terry - see PHOTOSPHERE

Name: AMBROSE, Owen Seaber  b. 1883  d.1967
Address: Stuntney
Working Dates: c.1900
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: The son of Cole Ambrose, a farmer, Owen lived at The New Hall Stuntney, Cambs. He is described in the 1911 census as a farmer. The Cambridgeshire Collection holds a number of Owen's photographs of Stuntney and Prickwillow, including an old photo album with family photographs. Some of his earlier images appear very amateur, but it seems that he quickly improved and there are many high quality images surviving. In the Cambridgeshire collection are two of his images which appear in alternative versions as post cards, so Owen may have done more than purely amateur work. The postcard below of Prickwillow Vicarage, postally used in 1918, is believed to be from one of his images, there being other photographs of this scene and of snow scenes in Prickwillow by Ambrose in the Cambridgeshire Collection. There is however nothing printed on the card to show either the publisher or the photographer.

Cambridgeshire Collection - the duplicate postcard items are: Y.Pri.J9.10347, Prickwillow Vicarage and Y.Pri.J9.10357 Prickwillow Church.

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Produced many photographs and postcards of the Elsworth area. See below for an example, a view of Boxworth Church c 1910.
