Name:  MADDISON, Arthur   b:1833     d:1887
Address: 1869 High Street Huntingdon, 1877 Godmanchester and North End Huntingdon, 1885 North End Huntingdon only
Working Dates: c. 1855-1885
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Arthur Maddison evidently operated in a larger photographic market than that offered by the small town of Huntingdon. In 1859 in The Journal of the Photographic Society of London (fore-runner to the Royal Photographic Society) he advertised his skills and techniques in hand tinting photographs as follows: "Easy and Effective Method of Colouring Collodion Pictures. Mr A Maddison, Photographic Artist, Huntingdon, will on receipt of 2s 6d, send full directions of his method of colouring on Collodion and paper, whereby all the common powder colours will adhere, giving a nice equal colouring over the plate; this has been a long time a desideratum, especially for scarlet: any depth can be obtained, so as to be scarcely distinguished from Miniatures on ivory. Coloured specimens per post 2s 6d". In the same Journal he also advertised photographic materials as follows: "Arthur Maddison's Superior Collodion and Varnish, both equally adapted for positive and negative photographs producing pictures of great brilliance. The Collodion has been so long before the public that its merits as a universally excellent collodion are well known. Price 10s per 20ozs packed. Sample bottle 2s 6d post paid. The new varnish gives a hard and beautiful glassy surface preserves the whites and receives the powder colours, so that colouring is made much easier by its use. Price 5s 6d per 20 ozs. Prepared and sold by Arthur Maddison, Artist and Chemist, Huntingdon. AGENTS London - Photographic Depot 117 Cheapside, Dublin Bewley & Evans Sackville St, Belfast Grattan & Co Corn Market, Edinburgh Kemp & Co Infirmary Street, Sheffield Chadburn Brothers, Opticians, Cheltenham R Jeffrey Pittville, Darlington HG Thompson, Priestgate. And through all Dealers in the Kingdom. Printed instructions gratis. Carriage paid to London on all orders of 20s and above. A good formula for making Collodion sent for 13 postage stamps"

The full history of Arthur Maddison and the firm he established is to be found in this article by Alexa Cox.

Arthur Maddison started his photographic business in Huntingdon in the mid 1850s in the High Street, probably in his father's, (John Maddison's) upholstery and cabinet makers premises, somewhere around 102 High Street. Arthur later opened studios in Bedford (in 1864) and St Ives. In Feb 1868 Arthur Maddison photographed the Prince of Wales during his visit to Kimbolton Castle. Thereafter he described himself as a "Royal Photographer" and used the Prince of Wales feathers in his advertising. From 1860-9 Maddison also leased a studio at 1 Priory Terrace Bromham Road, Bedford.

In 1874 Arthur Maddison married Julia Hinde, who had two sons, Frederick and Albert Hinde. That year Arthur moved house and business to 74-5 Ermine Street Huntingdon. He also had premises in Post Street Godmanchester until around 1884.

Arthur Maddison died in 1887. His widow leased the photographic business to an established Bedford Photographer, Thomas Percy Graham, on condition that her son Frederick Michael Hinde was employed in the business. In May 1890 the business returned to the Maddison Family being run by Julia Maddison and Frederick Michael Hinde, trading in the name of Maddison and Hinde. Frederick Michel Hinde ran the business from 1892. In 1903 a fourteen year old Ernest Whitney was employed by the firm which eventually, in 1927, he was to take over.

In the late 1850s Maddison produced hand tinted stereoscopic portraits, the mounts impressed with a hand embossing machine "A Maddison Artist Huntingdon". The first example carte de visite shown below is an early example of Maddison's work, from the 1850s/early 1860s. Mounted on cream card with square corners, the reverse has a simple garter design surmounted by a hunting scene as found in the Huntingdonshire crest. Note the base of the head clamp is just visible behind the subject's chair. Arthur Maddison is described as " artist and photographic chemist, Huntingdon". Image from the collection of David Simkin. Below this is a carte de visite of similar age with a similar mount, but the image has been hand tinted, especially in crimson - although the current preponderance of crimson may be because this is the colour least faded by light over the years. (Michael Brown Collection)

Below this is a carte de visite of a seated lady in crinoline. The mount includes the 1 Priory Terrace Bedford address and patronage by the Prince of Wales and negative No 888. Royal patronage and the Bedford address puts this carte at around 1868 - 1869. (Michael Brown Collection)

Next is a carte de visite of a lady in crinoline with child. The eyes have been re-touched and as the photograph has faded so these now contrast with the rest of the portrait. The reverse of the mount, printed in black, reads "Patronised by the Royal Family. Cartes de visite of all kinds taken by a new instantaneous process without headrests. by Arthur Maddison, North End Huntingdon. No..... Cartes de visite of this quality 5/- per dozen. Groups 6d each figure extra. 12 cartes 5/- Copies always to be had at The Studio North End Huntingdon". The North End address puts this carte at a date after 1874. (Michael Brown Collection) Next is another carte of a lady in crinoline. The reverse of the mount is printed in red and is similar, save for a reduction in prices to 12 cartes for 3/6d. (Malcolm Fletcher Collection).

Next is a very unusual carte de visite which is a copy of an earlier image, depicting a woman in crinoline. The reverse of the carte has an artist's palate design and states: "Copied by A Maddison Artist, Huntingdon, copies on application" and is negative no 3360. It is very unusual to find a photographer using a different and specific mount for copy photographs. (Michael Brown Collection)

Below this are three cartes de visite from the author's collection, all on cream square cornered mounts. The one on the left of the trio of a lady who appears to be pregnant is the older of the trio, as evidenced by the rear of the carte which includes Maddison's name and address and no mention of Royal patronage (pre 1868). The reverse of the other two cartes printed in brown ink lettering, states "Patronised by their RH The Prince and Princess of Wales." indicating a date after 1868. There are no negative numbers on any of these cartes. The older of the three is the better image and the other two are a softer focus, suggesting that they could possibly be reprints.

Below this are three more cartes de visite from the author's collection, all on cream card mounts with square corners. The first is of a seated gentleman with a tall top hat with narrow curved rim, from negative No.1273 probably from the 1870s. The reverse of the carte, printed in gilt lettering, states "Patronised by their RH The Prince and Princess of Wales." indicating a date after 1868. The second carte, in an oval mask, of a beautiful young woman, unfortunately cropped along the bottom edge of the mount, is from negative 8982, so is a few years older. The print on the reverse is green, the fonts slightly different. The third, of a young boy in a curved top mask, is subtly different. On the face, barely visible, part of the actual photographic print are the words "A Maddison Huntingdon", which together with the lack of a negative number and slightly poorer image quality suggests that this could be a reprint of an earlier carte.

On one occasion Arthur Maddison registered one of his photographs for copyright purposes at Stationers’ Hall. This was a photograph of A H Smith Barry Esq MP, nearly full face.  Copyright owner and author of work: Arthur Maddison, 74 & 75 Ermine Street, Huntingdon. Form Completed 16 July 1886.

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information:

Harry Marriott was the son of a confectioner, John George Marriott (b:1840 Fleet Lincolnshire), living with his family at 35 Brown Bridge Street Peterborough in 1881. By 1891 Harry was a printer's compositor, boarding at Heighham, Norfolk where he was living as a lodger. In the 1901 census Harry Marriott, described as a "photographic artist", lived with his family at 2 Elm Wood Villas, London Road, Peterborough. He was described as an employer- not working from his home address. Harry's family then comprised his wife, Ellen (b:1873 Wickersley, Yorkshire) and daughters Millicent M (b:1897 Peterborough), Marion (b:1898 Peterborough) and Evelyn (b:1899 Peterborough). By 1911 Harry and family were living at 6 New Road Peterborough. His family had grown by then to 8 children in total. He was described as a photographer working from his home address on his own account.

An advertisement in Cook's Peterborough and District Directory, 1894, p188, states: "The Cathedral Studio is the most central in Peterborough having large accommodation for groups; it is replete with every convenience in reception and dressing rooms. Enlargements in oil, carbon and monochrome. Platinotypes at reasonable prices. Cathedral Studio, Minster Gateway, Peterborough. H Marriott, Photographic Artist. HM devotes much attention to groups and personally attends all outdoor work. Copying in all its branches and faithful reproduction from all sizes. If you want a really good picture and likeness you must visit the Cathedral Studio."

Marriott's studio

View across Cathedral Square c.1895 with Harry Marriott's Cathedral Studio sign above Geo Caster's printing office

It would appear that Harry Marriott changed his trading name from time to time and he was also the person behind the Eastmid Studio from around 1898. By 1903 Harry Marriott was in the process of being adjudged a bankrupt. A report of this in the Bucks Herald - Saturday 19 December 1903 records "Marriott, Harry, trading Eastmid's Studio, 2, Elmwood Villas, London Road, Fletton, and 5a. Market Place, Peterborough, photographer. Dec 9."

The first two cartes de visite illustrated below, from the author’s collection, mark the end and the beginning of Marriott’s photographic work. The male subject is one of Marriott’s earliest. The photograph is mounted on cream card printed on the face “H.Marriott Peterborough”, but on the reverse is printed “The Cathedral Studio Artist and Photographer miniature and portrait painter Thos F Groves, Peterborough. Negatives kept copies can always be had, portraits enlarged to any size and finished in oils, water colors or crayons” and this is overstamped in red “H.MARRIOTT” – so Marriott was using up a stock of his predecessor’s mounts, suitably modified. By contrast, the carte with the female sitter marks the end of Marriott’s work. The face of the carte is printed “H Marriott Cathedral Studio Peterborough” but is over-printed by his apparent successor “Eastmid & Co, Late [H Marriott]”. The rear of the carte has a pink tinge with lavish personalised design in dark brown, with flowers, a butterfly and an image of Peterborough Cathedral, with the text “H Marriott Photographic Artist, Cathedral Studio, Peterborough” The Carte mount is marked “Rec C.E.& C” The third carte of a baby, with the faceside and reverse showing side by side, is another early example, with the reverse a Thomas Groves mount over-stamped with the name "H.Marriott". On the face of this mount there is a variation in that it shows in addition to H.Marriott Cathedral Studio Peterborough" that there is a branch at Oundle. The fourth image below (author's collection) is a cabinet photograph of a couple, the woman holds some flowers. The reverse of the mount is in cream and brown as described above for the cdv. The fifth image continuing the flower theme, from the collection of Simon Shirley, is a carbon print of a girl in a white dress with a floral head-dress and wand - is this simply dressing-up, an allusion to the May Queen or possibly from a stage production of something like a Midsummer Night's Dream? The rather bored expression on the sitter's face is in contrast to her cheerful outfit. The rear of this carte is similar to those above, again with a floral theme. Note the remains of a strip of glue along the top edge of the reverse which at one time would have secured in place a tissue protective cover. The carte is c.1900.

On seven occasions between 1894 and 1909 Harry Marriott submitted his photographs to Stationers' Hall for copyright purposes. These are listed below, showing he worked in portraiture, news, sports and the arts.

The funeral in question of Most Rev W.Connor Magee, Archbishop of York and former Bishop of Peterborough took place at Peterborough Cathedral on 9th May 1891. This securing of copyright must surely be an indication of practical steps taken by William Henry towards a photographic career. How far this aspiration progressed might be discovered if other examples of William Henry’s work come to light.  However, William Henry’s main career was to take a different course. His father died in 1900. In 1901, lodging at 7 Fitzwilliam Street Peterborough with his widowed mother and younger brother,  he showed his occupation as a science schoolmaster. In 1911, then a widower, living with his mother in law and daughter at 127 Wendover Rd Aylesbury, he was a school inspector in science, working for Buckinghamshire County Council.

Address: (Cambridge Studio) 18 Mill Road, Cambridge
Working Dates: 1898 - 1920
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Herbert's father, Nathan, a Post Office Messenger, (b:1837 Fulbourne Cambridgeshire) died when Herbert was less than a year old. Herbert was brought up by his mother Harriett (b:1834 Dorking Surrey), who worked as a college servant. In 1901 Herbert was still single, working as a photographer on his own account from the family home then at 18 Mill Road Cambridge. In 1902 he married Ellen, (b: 1874 Newmarket) and he was still living at 18 Mill Road, but he was described as the head of the household, although his mother Harriett was living there with them. The 1911 census shows him as a photographer working from home on his own account. When he died in 1931, Herbert was living at 5 Montague Road, Chesterton, Cambridge.

The first image below is a cabinet photograph of a vignette portrait of an unknown gentleman in bow tie and suit, c. 1890 (author's collection). The mount is cream. At the bottom of the mount is printed in gold lettering "Ht Mason, Cambridge Studio, Cambridge". The reverse of the mount is blank. Below this are two studio portraits (author's collection) of unknown young women. The seated subject is a cabinet photograph; the vignette is a carte de visite, both mounted on cream card with rounded corners and in impressed gilt lettering on the face have written "Cambridge Studio Mill Road Cambridge" with no printing on the reverse. The cdv portrait is unusually almost a full side profile or silhouette which has been well lit. Both images could be from around 1900 - 10. Kelly’s Directory of Cambridgeshire 1916 shows photographer Ethelbert W Baker-Smith operating at 18 Mill Road. Cambridgeshire Collection’s Carte de Visite Collection c.65.5 has one carte and two cabinet photographs from Herbert Mason, carrying the address "Cambridge Studio".

Name:  MASON & BASEBE, later MASON & BASEVI           
Address: Market Hill Cambridge 1901 and 19 and 20 Market Street Cambridge. Basevi - possibly briefly at 38 Hills Road Cambridge c. 1906 and 86 Tenison Road, Cambridge in 1907

Working Dates:
1900-11

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Mason and Basebe followed Ralph LORD. See below a carte de visite from the author's collection, head and shoulders portrait of impressively bearded man, on cream card with bevel edge with gold writing "Mason and Basebe Market Street, Cambridge". Reverse is blank with name of sitter in manuscript "Mr Doran"

It seems likely that the "Mason" part of this business was Herbert Charles Mason who is listed above, although Mason and Basebe and Herbert Mason both appear as separate entities in the same directories 1900-10. A clue can be found in a court case recorded in the Cambridge Independent Press on 28th April and 5th May 1905. This was a case of the theft of a camera from Herbert Mason by one George Werner de Sondeberg. The defendant persuaded Mason to employ him canvassing for business and then stole and pawned a camera which Mason had allowed him to use in that work, before absconding with the proceeds. The report of the case describes the victim as "Herbert Mason, Photographer, Market Street and Mill Road Cambridge".

The Basebe part of the partnership was Edgar Allan Basebe b:1860 Camden Town London. Edgar was one of the children of Sussex portrait painter Charles J. Basebe  (1818-1880). Charles and his wife Caroline had nine children, a number of whom became artists or photographers. Edgar Allan Basebe appears in Cambridge in the census returns for 1891, 1901 and 1911. In 1891 he was living at 48 Mill Road, Cambridge with his wife Mary A Basebe (b:1866 Bath Somerset), their son Edgar Elphege Basebe (b:1888 Cambridge), and Edgar's mother Caroline Basebe, a widow, (b:1821 Paddington). Edgar was described as a photographer. The family name was spelled as "Basebé". In 1901 Edgar and family were at 116 Mill Road Cambridge - his mother was no longer with him but they had a second child, Anabel (or Amabel) Mary Basebe (b:1896 Cambridge). Edgar was described as a photographic artist, a worker rather than an employer. In 1911 Edgar and his wife Mary were resident at 13 Eltisley Avenue, Newnham, Cambridge (the census return has been wrongly indexed in the surname "Basen" - a transcription error). Also in 1911, Edgar's son, Edgar Elphege, and daughter, Anabel Mary, were running their own photographic studio, The Abbey Studio, at 32 Gloucester Street, Malmesbury, Glos. The whole family appear to have changed their surname by 1911 to "Basevi". Edgar (Snr) died in Chippenham in 1922.

Two other small pieces of the jigsaw in relation to Edgar Allen Basebi are to be found in the National Archives. There is an application to Stationers' Hall for copyright protection 'Photograph (cabinet size) of the Reverend Robert Hugh Benson, Catholic Priest and author. Side face'. Copyright owner of work: Edgar Allen Baseir (surely a transcription error for Basebe), 38 Hill's Road, Cambridge. Copyright author of work: Edgar Allen Baseir (sic), 38 Hill's Road, Cambridge. Form completed: 19 April 1906. TNA COPY 1/496/168. The address of 38 Hills Road was being used earlier by William Edelstein. A second application to Stationers' Hall related to a photograph of the Reverend Father Robert Hugh Benson, Master of Arts of Cambridge. Profile, hand to face. Edgar Allan Basevi was shown as the copyright owner and author, and his address was given as 86 Tenison Road, Cambridge. This submission was made on 13 December 1907. TNA COPY 1/516/186

Below is a portrait of a lady, c. 1910, with light coloured dress and a kind of necktie decoration. This is slightly larger than a carte de visite. The image is printed 4cm x 7cm and is mounted on a cream card with textured border and rounded corners measuring 10.5 x 6.7 cm. The reverse of the mount is blank. Beneath the image is printed "Mason and Basevi Cambridge" - so Basebi changed his name to Basevi while at Cambridge

Address: Market Street Cambridge (1858), 20 St Andrews Street (1864) (Huntingdon Cottage, Cambridge shown as his address 1862 - 1866 but this may have been the house name at one of the addresses shown)
Working Dates: 1858-1870
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: According to Heathcote, William Mayland started in photography as an itinerant photographer in Truro and Liskeard in 1854. Listed in Cambridge in 1858 as "Photographic Artist" he was one of the earliest commercial photographers in Cambridge.

In the 1861 Census William and his young actress wife Mary (née Hodson b:Dublin 1833), were living at 2 Clarendon Street Cambridge. William was commissioned to take photographs of Royal groups at Sandringham in April 1866.

Eleven submissions were made by Mayland in the 1860s to Stationers' Hall for copyright protection of his photographs.

See below an early carte de visite of an unknown group of University men from the Simpson Family Archive The back-stamp on the carte has the 1858 to 1864 Market Street Address. Below this is a carte de visite (author's collection) full length portrait of young man, the reverse has printed in purple in a fancy scroll design "Mayland special notice honourable mention International Exhibition in Jurors report 1862 Cambridge", from the early 1860s. Next a vignette portrait of an unknown man, mounted on white card, square corners, on reverse is printed "Mayland Cambridge Photographer to HRH The Prince of Wales. Copies can be obtained at any time" and on face "Mayland Cambridge" late 1860s, early 1870s. Next are two further cartes from a similar period from the Simpson Family Archive , the reverse of each shows claims of Royal patronage. According to Heathcote, in 1870 Mayland moved to London forming a partnership with a Thomas R Williams, with whom he had a business arrangement going back some years. In the 1871 census, William and Mary were living at 63 St Pauls Road Islington.The partnership, TR Williams and W Mayland of 236 Regent Street, continued until 1880, despite the death of Williams in 1871. The reverse of cartes de visite by the partnership claimed Royal patronage and the award of medals in London in 1862 and Paris in 1855.
