William England / research

Hi everybody!

I am a photo historian from Germany and I am writing a PhD thesis on
William England at the University of Hamburg. I would like to find out more about
the early phase of England’s career. He is supposed to have worked as a
daguerreotypist in the 1840s. – Does anybody have further information on
this? I would be grateful for any other hints or suggestions regarding
(private) collections etc. Please contact me by e-mail:

Thanks and best regards, Gerlind

William England: Wales series

Hi everybody! I am looking for further stereos from the “New Series Welch Views” which is most probably by William England. I have attached two images (No. 11 and No. 13).  Does anybody have further information on this series or more scans…

Hi Gerlind,

Lovely meeting you yesterday at the RPS day of reconstructions and demonstrations. This is the Verascope story, which I think you already know about. There is also one William England image on Getty Images Wall Street 1859.

With all good wishes,

Dear Gelind,
I would be delighted to help and share information. Did you know that William England was related by marriage to Walter Bentley Woodbury?

Hi Gerlind
I collect stereoviews of the Alps and my interest in William England is purely his Alpine Club series. I have around 300 of these views, which is maybe around one third of the total issued including variants. I am also a member of the Alpine Club. They possess an album of photographs from his first tour of the Alps in 1863 with 150 images in it (24 5x4 inch and 126 stereo singletons).
happy to help on anything to do with this series of photos

Hello Gerlind
Have sent scans of some Sandringham views - like all LSC views they are not credited to William England , but are very much in his style
I assume you have been in touch with Hartmut Wettman who is a keen collecter of WE in Germany & Peter Blair , also on this site is a collector of WE Swiss views

Hello Gerlind
I have a collection of stereoviews by William England which covers most of the series he produced , Ireland , Paris , America , 1862 Exhibition , Sandringham , Switzerland , Rhine , Italy , Tyrol etc , but unfortunately as yet haven't got round to doing much in the way of research on him
Not all series as comprehensive as i would like , but happy to give any help i can
