Victorian Photographers Northumberland
 
I often come across collections of Victorian and Edwardian photographs - generally the Carte de Visite. Many have the names of the photographers on the reverse.

Before moving these on, from now on, I'll scan any that are for Northumberland - old Northumberland - Newcastle to Berwick - and record them here.

I'll do both sides, but the objective is to record the photographer. The identity of the subject(s), is, almost always, lost to time.


Please add your own if you have any!

Great idea Mike, somebody might recognise someone!
Here's a few of mine - all from my Grandmother in Amble so must be related but only Mrs Otto (top left) identified.

J. Austin Photographer 13 Grainger Street Newcastle
 
Splendid Gordon. If you have the scan at high resolution I can always add the Northumberland ones to the the thread 'large size'.

Here's an odd one. the image itself embedded in the card feels like something solid - glass or metal. I thought subject was a boy but on closer inspection it must be a girl?

[edit. I think this is what you call a 'Tintype' where the photo was on a metal plate. These are allegedly magnetic, and this one is. It would also explain the rust]

Other direction now, one from Morpeth.

'Charlton Morpeth'

I thought the name on this was just a dirty smudge at first but it is in fact an ink stamp - 'Charlton Morpeth'. I assume an early card for this photographer.

Plenty in the Newspaper archives regarding Mr. John Charlton, Photographer and for many years teacher at the Bullers' Green Mission Sunday School.

Not a photograph but a magic lantern, with dealers plate John Watson 34 Grainger St Newcastle, according to Lucerna, the magic lantern resource, that dates it to mid 1890s. Currently residing in my fathers loft and has been for at least 60 years, pics attached

Nice item. I did have a box of magic lantern glass slides at one time. Landscape photos, coloured Christmas themed slides and other religious ones. Now sadly gone. All very collectable I think. Boy were they heavy when all together.

Only a solitary Blyth card in the collection I have:

J.L. Clark, Central Hall Buildings, Waterloo Blyth.

If we don't have 20-30 Blyth photographers I'll be surprised!
