Name:  WEBB, F.S.  b:   d:
Address: 19 Howitts Gardens, St Neots, Cambs
Working Dates: c. 1993
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: FS Webb exhibited the photograph below at the St Neots and District Camera Club Annual Exhibition in May 1933. The photograph (11.5 x 8in) is entitled Eaton Ford Old Windmill now a residential home. The reverse has the photographer's details in manuscript, in a mini lable and has a St Neots and District Camera Club exhibition label. (This raises the point that occasionally former photo club presentation mounted prints can be found - and does each merit an entry here, or should they be separately recorded with other information on local camera clubs).

Name:  WEBSTER, Alfred  b:1883 Barnack   d:
Address: Bainton in 1904, Barnack, near Peterborough 1905.
Working Dates: c. 1904 - 1925 ?

This appears to be Alfred Webster, b:1883 Barnack who was a "cycle agent" living in Barnack in 1911 with his wife Lily b:1884 Winwick Northants and son Leslie b:1904 Barnack.

Name:  WEHRLE Miss    b:       d:
Address: 29 Sidney Street, Cambridge
Working Dates: 1920-25
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Spaldings Directory of Cambridge lists beside her name “Private Appointments” The Wehrle family at 29 Sidney Street Cambridge in the 1911 census comprised Alfred Wehrle b:1855 Bishops Stortford, watch and clockmaker, jeweler, dealer, his wife Rosa b:1865 Baden, Germany, son Alfred A b:1891 Cambridge, an assistant in the business and daughter Lucia b:1898 Cambridge, so presumably Miss Wehrle in 1920-5 would have been Lucia Wehrle. The Cambridge Independent Press of 27/6/1913 noted the appointment of the Committee of the Cambridge Photographic Club for the year ahead were Messrs Coulson, Johnson, Ogle, Porcher, Tams, Scott, Wehrle and Winship. However, the Wehrle in question may have been A.A.Wehrle, Lucia's brother, who was reported to be a prize winner in one of the Club's competitions (CIP 14/11/1913). AA Wehrle was killed in 1918, a Sergeant in the Artists Rifles.
