"The top one looks like it may be an unsigned Bedford. The location would be right, and the man in the middleground looks a good bit like FB's assistant. But Paula would have a better idea, I think."

"Paula Fleming, no point in scanning the backs, they are both plain with nothing printed, other than the fore mentioned written on the back in copperplate "Royal York Crescent, Clifton. Bristol." on the first image."

1860s stereo images: Help to try to identify photographers

I returned to my one local antique store this week and traded some images I had for scores of English stereoviews. One is easy to identify  in terms of place as its written on the back in copperplate "Royal York Crescent, Clifton. Bristol." I wonder if this view attached could be by William Harvey Barton, who was active in the…See More

"A couple of South Australian images; The first is by Bernard Goode and shows what I believe is the Mount Barker Road and the second is extinct volcano now filled with water, called the Blue Lake at Mount Gambier. Photographer unknown."

"Thanks for your comments Alex. It would seem that the St Alban's Abbey and Houses of Parliament views predate my Brewster style viewers, newly acquired!"

"The yellow stereo looks more 1860s (I assume it's a flat mount and square corners.).  But the uncolored one with that style label is typically mid-1850s, as Michael indicates."
