Name: RICH, Benjamin b: 1845 Fen Drayton, Cambs d:
Address: High Street, Huntingdon
Working Dates: 1871
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Benjamin Rich appears in the 1871 census of Huntingdon as a photographer living in the High Street with his wife Mary J b: 1851 Huntingdon. There are only four households in the census return between Benjamin and Huntingdon photographer Arthur Maddison, raising the question whether Benjamin was employed by Maddison. In any case Benjamin's career took a different course and in 1881 and 1891 Benjamin is shown resident in Cambridge, occupation - a groom.

From the single entry as a photographer in the local directory in 1869 it appears that their involvement in photography was relatively short lived.

Name: ROSS, Peter b:1854 Manchester d:1897
Address: Station Road, and Broad Street, March (not known which address Peter Ross occupied first)
Working Dates: c.1888
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: There was a photographic artist called Peter Ross b: 1854 Manchester living at 40 Commercial Road, Spalding in the 1881 census. He was living with his wife Ellen M b:1859 Grainthorpe Lincs and daughter Carrie b:1880 Spalding. In 1891 Peter was still a photographer in Spalding living at 20 Swann Street. His family comprised wife Ellen M, daughter Carrie, sons John W b:1882 Spalding and Edward A b:1889 March Cambridgeshire. The birth of their youngest son in 1889 ties in with the appearance of Peter in the local March Trade Directory in 1888. The family remained in Spalding until Peter's death and beyond. It seems likely that his association with March was relatively short lived. The carte de visite below of an unknown blond haired infant has had the lower cm or so trimmed to fit in an album. The reverse of the mount has the legend "From the Photographic Studio of P.Ross, Broad Street, March", a different address to that listed by Kelly in 1888.

Unknown cottage by CW Rutter

Text from mount of the photo above by CW Rutter

Postcard by CW Rutter

Name: RYLANDS, Joseph b:1836  Rothwell Yorkshire     d:1895
Address: Cambridge - at some point at 20 St Andrews Street,
Working Dates: c.1870s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1861 and 1871 Joseph was lodging at 24 Earl Street Cambridge with a bookbinder, John Hawes b: 1821 Birmingham. Joseph was a photographer and in 1871 was a photographer employing 1 man and a boy. In 1880 it is possible that Joseph was operating in Doncaster. A report in the Sheffield Independent of 8th January 1880 concerning an explosion mentions that a photograph of the damaged premises was produced by Doncaster photographer Mr Joseph Ryland. (note the missing "s" from the surname) In 1881 Joseph was a boarder at 37 Blue Bell Hill Nottingham, where he was shown as a photographer. In 1891 Joseph was boarding at 13 Cooke Street Hulme Manchester, where he was being employed as a book keeper.

The first carte de visite below is a head and shoulders portrait of an unknown young man. It is mounted on a square cornered cream card mount with the name "Mayland Cambridge" on the face. On the reverse is printed "J Rylands, successor to Mayland Cambridge photographer to HRH The Prince of Wales". It seems likely that Joseph Rylands was initially employed by one of the other Cambridge photographers. Mayland was at 20 St Andrews Street Cambridge, but moved to London in 1870. It is possible that Joseph Rylands took over Mayland's business then, or possibly later when the premises were being offered to let in 1875.

See below for a carte de visite of a young man in side profile, the carte has square corners and is mounted on white card. On the face is written "J Rylands Cambridge" and on the reverse is "J Rylands Cambridge copies can be obtained at any time". There is a Prince of Wales feathers design with the text. The carte is from the 1870s.
