Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I am looking for information on Alfred Hugh Harman (abt 1841 in Kennington, Surrey, London – 23 May 1913 in Surrey, Sussex), who was a photographer and partner of Henry Dages and founded the Britannia Works, later Ilford Ltd in 1879.
Is anything known about his marriage to Amelia Ann (or Margaret) Taylor in 1860. His connection to Nina Octavie Helvetie Du Gué who is shown as his wife in 1881. Also Margaret Hilda Knobel who I believe was the daughter of Edward Ball Knobel - Director Photographic Plate Company (Ilford Photographic Company) and is shown as adopted daughter of AH Harman. He left her a share of his fortune in his will.
There is some limited biographical information in Hercock and Jones' Silver by the Ton: The history of Ilford Limited (1979) plus, of course, http://www.photolondon.org.uk/pages/details.asp?pid=3494
