Seeking portrait of W. E. Kilburn of London

Hi all

Does anyone know of the existence of a portrait of daguerreotypist William Edward Kilburn, or for that matter any of his brother Douglas Thomas Kilburn who worked in Australia other than the one taken by J. W. Beattie?

  • Hi Marcel

    I would welcome any response to my Forum post on W E Kilburn and my blog post on the same and his relationship with John Barrett

    The Forum post was on Feb 9 2022 and the original Blog post was on 18July 2020 with notes added on 11th May, 1st October and 30th November 2021

    Although al the above entries have received approaching 500 reads sadly the information I was seeking has not been forthcoming

  • Hi Meir, Thanks for sharing this. I am in touch with Alistair who is mentioned in the eBay description so I will remind him about this image as it hasn't yet been mentioned. Thank you for sharing the detailed scan. I will get back to you when I have more information. Cheers! Marcel
