"The 1841 Census shows a William Carsoe, 65, carpenter, boarding at a residence in Broad Street, Lambeth St Mary, London. Could it be the same person, I wonder?"

Hi Brett

Thanks for your response to my Stickyback post. I will certainly let you know if we come across further Derby images and details. Do you have a collection of other Stickybacks, as single images perhaps? One of the points we're interested in is that often it's single images in the public domain today, which may have been the studio's 'offcuts'.

Kind regards,

Rachael

Good evening, Mr. Payne,

Let me express my gratitude and appreciation for the best approach to the subject of the Cambridge photograph of 1907.

The method you suggested (and realized) has led to solving the question.

Thanks again.

With my best regards.

Krzysztof K. Slowinski

Thanks Brett. I had the opportunity to visit Cotter House (in private ownership) at the weekend. The house was built by Joseph Newman who features in my contribution to the book you've just purchased. The owner didn't seem to be aware of Newman's interest in photography - not surprising I suppose..
