Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Several years ago I came into possession of two tin trunks that were found in the attic of an old house in my hometown of Sarnia, ON. One trunk was full of correspondence and the other was full of glass and film negatives. After much reading and additional research, I was able to identify the photographer as being Royal Naval Commander Arthur FitzGerald Cochrane (1888-1967), the son of William Edward Cochrane (1858-1929) and Evelyn (1858-1908).
William Cochrane was a part-owner of a cattle ranch near Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the Cochranes spent their time between Britain and Canada, where Arthur was born. Arthur received his early education at Ashdown House, then continued at The Limes, where he trained as a cadet. The majority of the negatives I have cover his time as a cadet. He was quite a prolific photographer and in most cases, my scans could be better.
Here are a few examples:
