Name: LAMB, Edmund Thomas b: 1844 Tetbury Glos  d: 1913
Address: 5 Aukland Cottages Cambridge (1871) 5 Regent Terrace Cambridge (1881) 107 Victoria Road Cambridge (1891)
Working Dates: 1871 - 1891 in Cambridge, then Tetbury Glos no later than 1897 to 1913
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Edmund was the son of Thomas Lamb b: 1813 Tetbury Glos, a plasterer and tiler. In 1871 Edmund married Mary Jane Wisher b:1851 Spalding Lincs, and was living in Cambridge at 5 Aukland Cottages, off Newmarket Road, and was a photographer's assistant. His wife, Mary Jane, was the daughter of a solicitor's clerk and by the 1860s her family were living in Rose Crescent Cambridge. In the 1881 census Edmund was still a photographer's assistant, living at 5 Regent Terrace Cambridge, a move upmarket from Aukland Cottages being closer to the town centre and with open views across Parkers Piece. Edmund's name was incorrectly recorded by the 1881 numerator as Charles T Lamb. Edmund was living with his wife: Mary J Lamb b:1851 Spalding Lincs, and their three daughters, plus a servant and undergraduate lodger. The latter no doubt helping to increase the family income. In 1888 Mary Jane died and in the 1891 census Edmund was a widower, occupation listed as a photographer and an employee. He was living at 107 Victoria Road Cambridge with his three daughters: Elizabeth F Lamb b: 1874 Cambridge, Gertrude J Lamb b: 1877 Cambridge and Persis Annie Lamb b:1880 Cambridge. (Persis was Edmund's mothers christian name, and is a name which crops up in the Tetbury area since Elizabethan times) Elizabeth was shown as an apprentice - but no indication of the trade she was following. By 1897 Edmund appeared in the Kellys Directory as a Photographer with a fancy goods repository in Church Street Tetbury Glos. In the 1901 census Edmund was shown as a photographer, operating on his own account at 10 Church Street, Tetbury. His daughter Persis was still living with him and was shown as a photographer's assistant. By 1911 Edmund was a photographer and stationer working from his home at 10 Church Street Tetbury, all three daughters, who were still single, were with him, Persis assisting in the business, Elizabeth a milliner and Gertrude a hospital nurse. In 1912 The Gloucester Journal reported the marriage in Tetbury of Elizabeth Florence Wisher Lamb to Wilfred Ling, a Rhodesian mounted policeman. The press report referred to Edmund Lamb's family as "well known and highly respected in the town". Edmund died in 1913. A 1914 Commercial List for Tetbury lists Edmund Thomas Lamb as a photographer and fancy goods repository in Church Street. The 1924 Tetbury Almanac lists Miss Persis Lamb as a photographer in Church Street Tetbury. Edmund's daughter Persis continued to run a photography business in Church Street until her death on 8 May 1936. When she died, the administrator of her estate was named as Wilfred Dennis Moss, Photographer.( Moss, b: 1881 was listed in the 1911 census as a photographic artist living at 24 Cecily Hill, Cirencester.) At some later point it is possible that the business name became Clark and Lamb. Gloucestershire Archives list under one reference in their catalogue six photograph portraits by J Clark and E T Lamb of Tetbury, which they date to around 1930. They don't have sufficient resources to confirm whether they have simply catalogued photographs by two separate firms under one reference or whether their catalogue refers to six items from a combined firm. There are also in existence Tetbury postcards published by Clark and Lamb. Jas. Clark was another Tetbury photographer who operated from the Market Place in Tetbury; in the 1914 commercial list he was shown as a stationer in Long Street Tetbury and in the 1924 Tetbury Almanac he was a picture framer in Long Street and Church Street.

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Walter Lane was a gents outfitters manager in Ely and a keen amateur photographer. Walter was elected a member of Cambridge Photographic Club 31/10/44. He was interested in using his photography to record the events of his time and so when the 1947 fen floods occured Walter spent all his spare time for weeks recording the effects of the floods and the efforts of civilians and military in the face of this terrible natural disaster. For a period he was an unofficial photographer for the military personnel engaged in Operation Neptune - the rescue and clear up operation. Around a thousand of Walter's negatives and prints from the floods are held in the Cambridgeshire Collection. Around another 300 of his other negatives have also survived there, covering topics which include shop window displays from Ely. Some of Lane's 1947 flood images were included in the 1986 exhibition "Fen Archive" at the Cambridge Darkroom, Gwydir Street. Walter sold many of his prints of the floods to help raise money for the flood victims.

Name:  LAW, Misses Alice Teresa and Florence Aspasia    
Address: Park Road, Peterborough and 7 or 30 Victoria Road, Peckham
Working Dates: 1890-1901
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1861 Edward Law (b:1836, Peckham Surrey) was an ironmonger living in Whitechapel. His family comprised his wife Harriet (b:1833 Morton Essex), daughters Harriet Teresa (b:1856 Whitechapel) and Alice Teresa (b:1860 Whitechapel) and son Edward Gibbon (b:1858 Whitechapel). Another daughter, Florence Aspasia, was born in 1863 in Whitechapel. The three daughters remained spinsters and all became photographers. In 1881 the three Law sisters were living together at 70 Azenby Square, Camberwell, London. No occupation was shown for any of the three sisters. In 1891 Florence and Alice were living at Lyndhurst Road Camberwell. Florence was the head of the household and their mother Harriet was living with them. Florence and Alice were described as photographers. Harriet Teresa Law was a lodger in Peterborough at 2 Vergette Street in 1891, described as a photographer working on her own account. Local directories show Alice and Florence working as photographers in Park Road Peterborough between 1890 and 1901. At some point during this period the trio also had an address at 7 and 30 Victoria Road Peckham (see cabinet photo and carte de visite below) Photo London suggests that the 30 Victoria Road Studio was in use c 1891-6 and the 7 Victoria Road address was used from c. 1895 - 1900. In 1901 Alice and Florence were at 34 Clayton Road Camberwell. Alice was a photographic re-toucher working on her own account from home. Florence was the Secretary of a Society working from home. Meanwhile, in 1901, Harriet was a lodger in Peterborough at 106 Bright Street, where she was described as a photographer working on her own account. In 1911 Alice and Florence were living together at 59 Mountpelier Rd Peckham. No occupation was shown for Alice; Florence was shown as a clerk. Florence died in 1937, Alice in 1938 and Harriet in 1941.

The first example below is a carte de visite of a lady in a dark gown with leg of mutton sleeves. The face of the carte states "A and F Law Park Rd Peterborough and at 30 Victoria Rd Peckham". The reverse has a flower spray design by Marion of Paris, with Rg No 42.061 and Marion code "Marion, imp Paris _ . _ Text on the rear states "Artistic Photography A and F Law Park Rd Peterborough and at 30 Victoria Road Peckham. Portraits copied to any size & colored in oil, water color, or crayon" This is probably from around 1893 - 5. Below this there is a cabinet photograph of an unknown young man smartly dressed in morning suit, with watch chain is probably from the late 1890s. On the face of the mount is printed in sepia "A & F Law Park Road Peterborough and at 7 Victoria Rd Peckham". The reverse, again printed in sepia, has a peacock feather and floral design and the legend "Artistic Photography A & F Law, Park Rd Peterboro' and at 7 Victoria Road Peckham. Portraits copied to any size & colored in oil, water color or crayon. Copies of this photo may be had No....." . Below this is another Cabinet photograph of a teenaged girl, the mount almost identical to the last, but with slightly different layout and type faces - suggesting one mount may have been the copy of the other by a different supplier. There is no indication which came first, neither bearing a printer or designer's name.
