Name:  PAIGE, Miss Alice b:1878 South Hackney Middlesex  d: 1967
Address: Histon, Impington
Working Dates: 1900-1912 (probably until much later, but last trade directory entry is 1912)
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Alice Paige was the daughter of Charles Paige b:1847 Harlow, the station master at Histon Railway Station. Alice grew up in Station Road Impington and appeared there in the 1881 and 1891 census returns. The Cambridge Independent Press reported on 25 January 1895 on the latest meeting of the Histon Gospel Temperance Meeting where Alice Paige gave a recitation. In the 1901 census Alice was a visitor in Hornsey, at the home of Christian J Muller (stationer and printer), and his wife Emily E Muller, and was listed as a photographer. In the 1911 census Alice was again listed as a photographer, living at The Limes, Impington, with her widowed mother Elizabeth, b: 1857 Bishops Stortford, brother Frederick William b: 1879 Histon, a railway clerk, and sister Lilian Elizabeth b: 1885 Histon, a music teacher. In the 1901 census In the 1901 census at the family home at Histon Railway Station another sister was living with the family: Maud Paige, b 1881, a milliner in 1901. In the 1881 census Alice also had a sister Maria A Paige, born 1880, who did not appear with the rest of the family in later census returns.

Alice was a prolific local photographer. Eleanor Whitehead of the Histon and Impington Village Society Archive has for many years handled Alice's material and states "Alice took portraits, attended village athletic events, took many village views (almost all having people/children in them), took club photos, photos to advertise businesses, photographs of local events of all sorts. She had endless postcards published – some several times over a long period and by different publishers. Some were tinted. Others were compounds of multiple views". The examples of Alice's work below are reproduced here by kind permission of the Histon and Impington Village Society. One image, marked below, is reproduced by permission of Tony Brown.

Portrait of girl wit dog by Alice Paige     Tony Brown's portrait of Alice Paige

Above left, a delightful sentimental portrait of a girl with a dog, bottom of the cream mount bears the legend "A.Paige Histon near Cambridge". Beside this is a later photograph of the same sitter and the same dog, in oval cream mount, no photographer's details. This second photograph is reproduced by permission of its owner, Tony Brown. Tony is a family historian and his grandparents were friends with the Paige family. Tony has carefully analysed several surviving photographs of members of the Paige family to identify these images as self portraits of Alice Paige. This probably puts the dates of these two photographs as c.1898 (left) and c.1903 (right)
