References: Cambridge Yellow Pages 2000

Name: BARBER, William Charles b: 1859 Halesworth, Suffolk d:1929
Address: Victoria Street, Littleport.
Working Dates: c. 1914 -1920s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: William was a printer and also a publisher of real photo postcards. William and his family were in Clerkenwell London when their three eldest children were born. By 1898 the family (William, wife Bessie, four daughters and a son) were in Littleport. In the 1911 census William is shown as a letterpress printer and an employer. Not currently known whose images were used on William's postcards.
References: William is included in a "Directory of Cambridgeshire Postcard Publishers/photographers noted before 1914" by Michael Rouse in "Cambridge in Early Postcards", Oleander Press 1978. 1916 Kelly's Directory of Cambridgeshire lists W.C.Barber, Victoria Street Littleport, as a printer.

Name:    BARKER, John H. b. d.
Address: Cambridge
Working Dates:  c. 1893-1901 in Cambridge
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: In 1986 the Cambridgeshire Collection was allowed to copy a series of photographs, many taken in Cambridge between 1893 and 1898, mainly of street works and electricity generating equipment related to the Cambridge Electric Supply Co. The album was owned by a reader from Bedford. The series of 3 x 4in albumen prints in the album were of a good professional standard in terms of composition and exposure. The album had been put together by John H.Barker, who presumably was also the photographer concerned. The album was headed "John H Barker, Miller Prize, 1890-91 part 2". The album included a certificate to Barker from the Institute of Civil Engineers, congratulating him on the 50th anniversary of his election to that body on 6 December 1892 (certificate dated 6 Dec 1942). Thankfully 35mm copy negatives of all the photographs in the album are now preserved in the Cambridgeshire Collection. Sadly it would appear that this album has since changed hands and has been split and individual prints have been separated sold on Ebay. Four examples from the author's collection are below. The Cambridge Daily News Fri 22 Feb 1901 p3 reported on a dinner for employees of the Cambridge Electric Supply Co on the occasion of the Company's secretary and engineer, John H Barker AMICE, MIEE, leaving Cambridge to take up an appointment at the Hon C.A.Parsons' Heaton Engineering Works in Newcastle upon Tyne.
