Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
A question for those with knowledge on Elliott & Fry cartes... Was the 'Copyright' caption on cdv mounts started being added after certain date or was it randomly used/not used after its inception? More specifically, is the 'Copyright' caption a good method to date their cartes in addition to studio addresses?
Hi Ron, checked both my email and ning inbox, but no message from you. [?]

Hi, just sent you a conclusion
An interesting eBay listing related to Elliott & Fry...
Unique ELLIOTT & FRY Victorian Photographic History Archive - http://www.ebay.com/itm/310417467875
The collection, housed in a leather antique cabinet card box, [according to the seller] includes:
Approx. 8 LETTERS from members of the Fry family to each other. Several are by Edmund Fry.
41 PHOTOGRAPHS from the STUDIO of ELLIOTT & FRY (35 cdv / 6 cabinets) most of which have been given humorous captions au verso probably by Clarence E. Fry himself, for his own amusement & perhaps to amuse his family & friends...these are well worth a closer look below! Two of my favorites are 'Having murdered her Mother she quietly contemplated the corpse' ...& 'Pressure on the Brain'.
ALSO A FURTHER 60 ELLIOTT & FRY PORTRAITS, not originally related to the main collection, but included for research / interest.
