"Hi John, I'm currently researching a album from c1870's, the paper could be a semi or lightly albumenised paper. (I believe around this time there was a revival in using a more matt type of paper, as opposed to the highly glossed fully…"

"Re Burton & Sons Burton & Sons are of some interest to me as one of the families that opened studios in the East Midlands. They lasted in Nottingham for over forty years but I think a lot of time it was managed by Seward.   I do…"

Nelson King Cherrill

"Hi Tony, Exciting to see something of Cherrill's NZ work. The late Bill Jay pointed out to me that Cherrill also printed some of Robinson's composite images. I think Cherrill also wrote articles for the (UK) photography magazines of the…"

"Hello and many thanks Brett. Your Burton cdv collection is valuable and user friendly. Except for some of Alfred Burton's outdoors portraits from King Country, it is disappointing to see, generally, how un-ambitious Burton Bros were with their…"

Janet Oakley commented on John B Turner's blog post John Burton and Sons of Leicester, Nottingham,etc., 1860 on
"Like Marcel, I think that it is coincidental that the Burton Bros photographic studio that operated in Dean Street Albury until 1895 had the same name as the New Zealand firm. There does not seem to be any connection between any of the photographers…"
