British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Pemberton Bros, Background painters from Blackpool

Dear all

Ive seen adverts from 1916 - 1937 in various journals from

Pemberton Bros., Background Studio, 2, Thorne Grove, Morton, Blackpool

Saying things like "Messrs. Pemberton Bros, manufacture a very wide variety of suitable backgrounds and will send their list illustrating the  various designs on application."

My question is if anyone actually has any copies of their list/ catalogue (unlikely I know) or examples of their backdrops (even less likely)

I am asking since they supplied backdrops to photographers in Ghana and other places in West Africa where my research is based

Any leads /suggestions most gratefully receievd
