Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Bromley House, a private members library in Nottingham City centre has an interesting photographic history. It was the home of one of the first commercial photographic studios in the country when Alfred Barber opened a daguerreotype studio in 1841 under licence from Richard Beard.
The late Pauline Heathcote carried out research into the photographers who were at Bromley House as well as Richard Beard. She also carried out research on a great many studios and photographers throughout the British Isles.
Samuel Bourne and Arthur Marshall were members of Bromley House Library. Although they did not use the studio they were important photographers in the history of photography and were thoroughly researched by Pauline.
Bernard Heathcote has donated his late wife's archive of research notes and photographs to Bromley House Library. The archive contents are listed at www.bromleyhouse.org > About us > Our history > The Pauline Heathcote Archive.
Further information about the studio can be found at www.bromleyhouse.org >About us > our history > The Photographic Studio.
The studio and dark room are open to the public on Wednesday afternoons, by appointment only. Please contact Eric Butler at email@example.com
