British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Three more purchased  today from a country antique market.

One is an image that i would date as as 1850's to possibly 1860's of the PeaHen Commercial hotel in St Albans

Looking to try to identify both date and the photographer. I note the licence holder was a Mr Marks if that helps! (although Marks family held it from 1780 so perhaps not such a good clue!)
Can you help at all?
The next is of the same vintage but no label nor location

The “unknown photographer or town” stereoview is of the Ancient House, Buttermarket, Ipswich. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_House,_Ipswich

Thanks for your rapid identification Paul, much appreciated..

Hi - My first guess is that this view is by Poulton based on mount, border of label, etc.  Many aren't credited.

Thanks Paula for your excellent informed guess. Looking at some of the images I have seen online from your collection etc, Poulton is very likely the photographer.
