This original blog was posted on 18th July 2020. Since then it has had to date 265 views. It is still on the blogs section should you wish to re read it. But the main question remains un answered and I repeat it here in a further attempt to find an answer So how do cased images come to be taken by the W E Kilburn studio at Erddig and a third possibly so when the large majority if not all of the subjects taken by Kilburn were of notable subjects and subjects with royal connections in the Kilburn…See More

W E Kilburn - The soldier and the lady on the parterre

When you look on the internet at the many hundreds of daguerreotype images taken by W E Kilburn what you see, apart from the famous image of the 1848 Chartist rally, is almost entirely portraits of famous and well to do clients taken at his Regent Street studios. Although the Royal Collection does have images of servants, grooms, gamekeepers. beaters etc taken outside.So…See More
