British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I am researching early photography in Nottingham (UK) and would appreciate viewing any daguerreotypes from the Nottingham studios. These may be difficult to identify as the cases may only indicate ‘licensee of Beard” or similar  BUT if you have any cases (or indeed any other information) relating to the following I would greatly appreciate some details:  Alfred Barber, George Popowitz, E. Kaim, or Richard Young Booker. All pre 1851.   The Whitlocks of Birmingham (Joseph W. or Whitlock & Thompson) also operated in Nottingham for a short while but it may be difficult to distinguish any Nottingham examples from work at the more successful Birmingham studio.
