Address: 1 Lynn Road Ely c.1956 - 1966, Rous Road Newmarket 1960s The Maltings, Fordham Rd, Newmarket1980-1983
Working Dates: 1956 - 1983
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: John Slater was a professional photographer and a professional developing and printing manager who specialised in D and P services for professional photographers. John Slater was at 1 Lynn Road Ely in around 1956. These were premises which were previously the Ely studio of Starr and Rignall and John Slater may have been an employee of the firm before taking over the studio and running developing and printing there. This image from Soham Village College www.sohamgrammar.org.uk/sg-cricket-X1-1956.jpg bears his name and is from that year. There are a series of similar photographs of Soham Grammar School teams up to 1966 with the photographer’s name "John Slater Ely”. The wedding photograph below, 5.5 x 3.5 inches, is from the early 1960s and has a backstamp printed in blue, from a rubber stamp, “John Slater, photographer, Rous Road, Newmarket”. John Slater was active in Newmarket at least from 1963 when he photographed a special cake for Newmarket trainer Reg Day's 80th birthday. www.newmarketshops.info/No.125_High_Street.html. It is believed that as a Newmarket photographer John Slater did a lot of photograps of racehorses. Cambridge Yellow Pages 1980-1983 show John Slater as a photographer at The Maltings, Fordham Road, Newmarket. A number of different photo processing laboratories which were connected with John Slater have operated from this address and appeared in the Cambridge Yellow Pages: Colorlabs International Ltd, (1980 to at least 2000), Colorlabs Professional (1990 - 1998), Lichfield Laboratories (with involvement with Lord Litchfield - 1985 - 1990), Miniprints Ltd (1995 - 1998), United Photographic Laboratories Ltd (1982 - 1985).

Name:  SLATER, Norman b: 19/9/1893  d:
Address: Toll Bar Huntingdon Rural District (Great North Road, Sawtry)
Working Dates: c. 1939
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1911 Norman was living with his widowed mother Kate, brother Percy, sister Winifred and cousin Alvar Branson at Church Street Sawtry - no occupation was shown for Norman. His brother Percy was a photographer and his cousin was a carpenter. Norman Slater appears in the 1939 Register listed as a photographer. At the same address was his wife Agnes MM Slater b: 7/3/1897 and Joan S Wootton (Dunfold) b:26/11/1926. Norman was the younger brother of Percy John Slater (below). It is not known whether the two were in business together or separately.

Name:  SLATER, Percy John b: 25/4/1878 Sawtry  d:1973
Address: Sawtry
Working Dates: 1906 - 1940
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Percy was born in Sawtry, the son of John Slater b:1837 Cleckheaton, Yorks, a man living from private means and Kate Slater b:1858 Sawtry. In 1891 Percy was living with his parents at Sawtry, with his brother, Stanley G, b:1880 and sisters Mabel, b:1882, Gertude M, b:1883, Florence, b:1886, Irene M. b:1887, brother William E.D, b:1888 and sister Annie b:1890. All the siblings were born at Sawtry. In 1901 The family was living in The Church, Sawtry. Kate was shown as the head of the household. Percy was listed as a postman. Living in the household were Irene, William E. D., Annie, Winfred b:1893 and Norman b:1894.

Percy first appears in the Hunts Kellys Directory as a photographer in 1906, but must have started in photography a little earlier. In April 1903 Percy advertised his photo printing services in a number of Surrey Newspapers, offering "A nicely finished platino-bromide enlargement from any photograph packed post free for 4 shillings". In 1911 Percy was still living with his then widowed mother, Kate, at Sawtry. Percy was a photographer working from home on his own account. Also in the household were fellow siblings Winifred and Norman and a cousin Alvar Branson, a carpenter. In the 1939 Register Percy was living at The Green, Sawtry with his wife Rose E b: 24/7/1880. His occupation was listed as a photographer.

The first three photographs below were purchased by the author locally as having come from the Percy Slater collection. These appear to pre-date the earliest date shown above for Slater's trade directory entries. There are a number of possibilities. Did Slater operate as a photographer before turning professional or was he operating for a number of years before being picked up in the local trade directory? The photos appear to be contact prints approx 4in x 3in format. The first two show an assembly of people about to set off on, or having just finished, a march or parade. There is a banner for Burlington Oddfellows Lodge. It is believed that this photograph was taken in Sawtry and the band members are from Sawtry Brass Band. The third image is of an unidentified lady - the leg-of-mutton sleeves on her dress indicating the 1890s rather than the early 1900s.

The next photograph is a cabinet portrait from the Simon Shirley Collection of an unknown lady posing beside an ivy clad ancient tree, definitely an out-of-studio shot. The grey mount is inscribed "Percy J Slater, Sawtry, Peterborough". The reverse is blank. This appears to date from around 1900.

The next photograph shows just how valuable Percy Slater was in recording his local village environment. It is a 6 x 4 in photograph from the Simon Shirley Collection of the wonderful shop front of Lane & Westerman - listed in Sawtry as Grocers & Drapers from 1890 to 1924 and Grocers only from 1928 to 1936. The picture shows the drapers to the left and the grocers to the right, so pre-dates 1928.

Interestingly the Huntingdon Record Office also has Percy Slater family photographs some of which pre-date the years above. These include 1930s photographs of crashed cars, presumably from the nearby A1 and possibly for the local press, as well as events, groups and portraits.

In 1898 the Cambridge Daily News reported that on the last day of a cycle show photographs were taken by Sidney Smee. There is no obvious trace of Sidney Smee in the 1901 or 1911 census returns.
