British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I'm looking for some help to learn more about the two photographs pictured here. One is inscribed: "Photography by Bernard Alfieri / Fantastic Figures by S.M. Sulton" or possibly "Sutton."  Bernard Alfieri was a British photographer (1860-1839), mostly a Pictorialist, but these could also quite possibly be by his son, also named Bernard Alfieri, also a photographer.

There was an obituary in the BJP (30 June 1939, p. 415). He was one of the first members of the Linked Ring. In 1902 he joined Kodak Ltd as advertising manager and then moved to the Daily Mirror as art editor which he held until 1914. 'During his last years he was secretary of the Photographic News Agencies, an office which he held until his illness'. He died on 23 June 1939. 

An obituary from the British Journal of Photography (30 June 1939, p. 415) is reproduced here for interest.
