I would be interested to hear members' reactions to the posted photograph, as I have not encountered one like it before.  The original is a carte-de-visite, bearing an early Leamington imprint of H.…Continue

I must firstly apologise that this is not a British photographic enquiry, but I would be very grateful to know whether any members might have ready access either to hard copies or to an online resource of French local trade directories - les annuaires commerciaux.  The localities concerned are specifically Le Touquet and Nice, covering the period between 1920 and 1940.  During this time a firm of street photographers - Philo-Ciné - took pictures of passers by, including holidaying British…See More

Hi Peter, Thanks for accepting my invitation. I have been collecting Bedford for about 10 years, concentrating mostly on early works including his lithography in the early 1840's - 1860's and his photography between about 1853 -1868. I checked my inventory and came up with only 3 images related to Ludlow: Feathers Inn c. 1860, Ludlow Castle (Principal Front) c.1860, and a cdv: Ludlow Church and Mill Street, from Whitcliffe c.1865. I have another photograph I want to send you that I am trying to identify. It is an albumen print and corresponding waxed paper negative of a castle tower. Not sure where it is, but I wonder if it might be Ludlow castle. I'll send that separately. Thanks for looking....

Hi peter,

Thanks again for your reply, it's always lovely to see new images by Bedford - his output was immense and I guess we'll never see the total. No problem with direct contact. My mail address is clive.landen@live.co.uk.

best,

Clive.

Hi Peter,

Many thanks for your full and informative mail regarding the Francis Bedford view, 'Ludlow Castle from Whitcliffe'. Yes you are right, the image measures 7" x 5.50" so your attribution would seem correct. I enclose two other views, both by Bedford 1). 'Feathers Inn - Ludlow', which is from his large scale series published by Day & Son and measures 11.375" x 9.50" on 18" x 14" board. This carries with it a back label (which I enclose also). 2). 'Ludlow Castle, Doorway to Norman Chapel' and is credited 'Bedford' both in  letterpress on the front of the mount and interestingly a pencil inscription and signature under the image.

I am currently investigating whether this pencil signature in in fact by Bedford. This one measures 7.00" x 5.25" on 14.25" x 10.50" board. The gent posing beyond the entrance is I believe one of Bedford's sons, who as you most likely know, appeared in many of his views. I enclose both images images in a separate mail as the file sizes I think are too large. 

kind regards,

Clive Landen.

Hello Peter,

I have recently joined British Photographic History and your name was mentioned to me by Paula Fleming. She tells me of your passion for compiling photographic images of Ludlow and I wondered if you could help me in attributing the enclosed image of Ludlow Castle. First of all, do you know this image and secondly, I believe it is by Francis Bedford, someone who my own collection is based upon, but am not sure. Can you help throw some light on this one?

regards,

Clive landen
