Name:  HOLDICH Alfred George  b: 1862 Ramsey      d: 1923
Address: Somersham
Working Dates: 1898-1920
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Alfred was the son of a miller. In 1881 he was employed as a gardener in Somersham. In the 1901 census Alfred was living in West End Somersham with his wife Annie Maria (b:1869 Royston) and their three children, all born in Somersham: Elsie May (b:1893) Cecily Eva (b:1895) and Ella Marion (b:1897). Alfred was a photographer working on his own account from home. The same situation applied in 1911 when the family was living in the High Street at Somersham. Business could not have been that prosperous for Alfred as his wife was employed as a "charwoman" and two of his daughters as "day girl domestics".
The image below by Alfred Holdich is of a trio of domino players at a table in the open air in a garden with some kind of unusual stockade fencing c.1900. The photograph is on a glossy ivory mount with fine red border line on the face. The rear of the mount shows it was printed by Marion for another Somersham Photographer J Goodenough, whose name has been over-written in bold manuscript. (author's collection)

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1881 Thomas was a photographer living as a boarder at a public house in High Street Newnham Gloucestershire. He was shown as married, but his wife was not at the same address. In 1889 an advertisement appeared in the Cambridge Daily News on 6th August "T.Howell, portrait, landscape and architectural photographer 26 Lisburn Road Newmarket, under the distinguished patronage of HRH The Prince of Wales; HRH The Duchess of Teck; The Marquis of Lansdowne; Sir John Kennaway; The Rev John Lamport; Newport, Essex; and the London Artists Rifle Volunteers" In 1891 Thomas was shown in the census as a photographer living at 26 Lisburn Road Newmarket, with his wife Amelia (b:1853 Islington). They had a 25 year old racing groom as a lodger. In 1899 Richard Buck, a tailor of Newmarket, was charged in the local Magistrates Court with using threats towards Thomas Howell, photographer at Newmarket on March 15th. Buck was discharged when Thomas stated that he was no longer in fear of the defendant. In 1901 Thomas was at the same address, still working as a photographer, from home on his own account. By 1911 Thomas and Amelia had moved to 7th Row 63½ Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, and he was still working from home as a photographer on his own account. See below a carte de visite of an unknown woman with fur, mounted on black mount with beveled gilt edges and plain reverse, 1890s, author's collection. On the face is written "T Howell Newmarket", with the Prince of Wales feathers.

Name:  HUNT, Thomas Bidwell b: 1853 Ely Cambs d: 1926
Address: 95 Fitzroy Street and 8 St Edwards Passage Cambridge, in 1895 and at 130 Fitzroy Street 1900/13, at 13 Fitzroy Street Cambridge in 1916, at 90 Fitzroy Street 1922 and at 9 Fitzroy St 1922/5.
Working Dates: 1891-1926
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Thomas Bidwell Hunt was the son of Reuben Hunt, a millwright. He was born in Ely and trained initially as a gilder and in 1871 was living with his family at 24 Fitzroy Street Cambridge working as a gilder's assistant. In the census return in 1881 Thomas was living at 5 Portland Place Cambridge with his wife Alice (b:1857 Cambridge) and children: Alice Maud Mary (b:1875 Cambridge), Emily Johannah (b:1876 Cambridge) and Thomas Reuben (b:1878 Cambridge). Thomas was described as a "carver and guilder". In 1891 Thomas and family were living at 95 Fitzroy Street. Thomas was described as a "photographer". Additional children were John H. (b:1882 Cambridge) and William J. (b:1886 Cambridge). In 1901 the family were at 95 Fitzroy Street Cambridge. Thomas was again described as a "photographer, carver and gilder", working on his own account from home. In addition to Thomas and Alice, the family comprised Alice Maud Mary (described as a photographic printer), Emily Johannah (shop assistant), Thomas Reuben, (described as "photographer") William J.E. (office boy) and Frank, b:1888. It appears that Thomas ran a family photographic business. In 1911 the family, consisting then of Thomas, wife Alice and daughter Emily Johannah were living at 5 Clarendon Street Cambridge. Thomas was again described as "photographer carver and gilder". Thomas was described in directory entries as "Photographer and picture frame maker" in 1896 and 1904. Some 500 or so of his negatives have survived from which we can see that Thomas was a portrait, landscape and architectural photographer. See below a cabinet photograph from the 1890s of a delightful looking lady with leg of mutton sleeves and holding lilies, photographically rather spoiled by the very detailed floral background. This shows the 95 Fitzroy Street address - the mount has gilt edges and writing; the reverse of the mount is blank. Next are two other cabinet portraits cream mounts with gilt edges, reverse blank and the name TB Hunt and address 130 Fitzroy Street Cambridge in gilt lettering on the bottom of the face of the mount. In September 1923 Thomas's business suffered a setback when there was a fire at T.B. Hunt's photographer’s shop Fitzroy Street; confined to outhouse which he used as a developing room; destroying cameras plates and a developing set.

Cabinet photograph by TB Hunt

Two cabinet portraits by T.B.Hunt

Name:  HUNT, Thomas Reuben b:1878 Cambridge  d:1961
Address: St Edwards Passage, Cambridge
Working Dates: 1901 - c.1912
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: The son of Thomas Bidwell Hunt above. In 1901 he was living with his parents at 95 Fitzroy Street Cambridge and was described in the census as a photographer. In 1911 Thomas Reuben was married to Catherine Frances (b:1881 Cambridge) living at 65 Humberstone Road Cambridge with a daughter Catherine Alice Hunt (b:1910 Cambridge). In the 1912 Kelly's Directory of Cambridgeshire he was described as “Late of Hills and Saunders”, so he either trained at their Cambridge Studio as a very young man prior to their bankruptcy in 1892 or for a while lived away from Cambridge and worked at one of their other studios. He later took over his father's business in St Edwards Passage, Cambridge. There is only one local trade directory for him - 1912, suggesting he ran the business in his own name for a short time.

Name:  HUNT'S REAL GLOSSY PHOTO PROCESS
Address:
Working Dates: c.1908-1917
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Below is a real photograph postcard with glossy finish and white border with "Hunt's Real Glossy Photo Process" printed beneath the heading "Post Card" on the reverse. The subject of the post card is Girton College Cambridge, and the card has been postally used, bearing what appears to be a 1917 postmark. The local subject suggests a Cambridgeshire photographer (possibly one of the "Hunt"s listed above) but is more likely that this was a photographic process available to any photographer wishing to produce good quality glossy RP postcards from their images. Hunt could have been a photo processor somewhere who processed images for any photographer, producing from them quality glossy postcards. Alternatively Hunt could have supplied a "kit" of materials to enable photographers to print up their own images as quality postcards. Perhaps at some future date an advertisement will be found for Hunt's Real Glossy Photo Process to give a better idea of the origins of these cards. Below is a scan of the reverse of two other "Hunt's Real Glossy Photo Process" RPPCs from the author's collection. The top one is from a postcard depicting the Market, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk and has been postally used in 1908 - The wording is subtly different - "Hunt's Glossy Real Photo Process". Below that is the green printed reverse of another RPPC, not postally used, depicting The Choir at Manchester Cathedral. In this case there is also printed on the reverse the name of the photographer or publisher, M.H.Armstrong 81 and 81A King Street Manchester". The type faces on the images of the Cambridge and Great Yarmouth examples are similar, but that on the Manchester example is different.
