Thanks for the initiative, Marcel. I hardly know where to start in terms of my own research and interests because they are so many and varied. Perhaps I should send you a list, because quite a few came from or went to Australia after photographing in New Zealand. email@example.com
Hi Rob Whalley. I have over 40 spare cdv from Blackburn. Also loads of info. Would you like to get in touch? Ron Cosens firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you let Sandy know I have had no luck finding his photos. Nicole at Trader had a disc of them, and of course they were published back then.
When will you next be in Sydney? 22nd July is our market. I have a couple of CDVs I would like to show you.
hi - ref my recent question about implications of setting up as a photogrpaher.
I geto my dates wrong. In 1858 aged 24, my ggg uncle (Frank Walton) was still working only as a Confectioner. In 1861 he had moved to being a Bazaar Keeper in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. By 1870 he was describing himself as both a Confectioner and a Photographer and operating in the High Street of Grantham, Lincolnshire "in Booths". He was 36. So it looks like he was selling Gingerbread and other confectionery at the Fairs until the mid 1860's when he started to get involved in Photography. On this basis, I'd appreciate your opinion on how he might have got started and what costs, and methods he would have had to undertake... regards Peter
Great to hear from you, (sorry it’s my turn to be tardy in replying). I’m at the writing –up stage of my research (although the research never stops).
I’m basically trying to correct and put back the missing information, in an album containing photographs of Calvert R Jones.
Here’s the link if you’d like to see the album: http://digidol.llgc.org.uk/METS/CRJ00001/gallery
Your work with Michael Gray looks interesting, I’ve come across a few people related to the photographic families that had move to Australia, and maybe they took the process or prints with them?
All the best Alun (I’ll try and reply quicker next time)

Good to hear from you. Alas, nothing new on Insley at this end either. I won't be at Photo History XV. I'm heading to Florence for Photo Archives IV: Photo Archives and the Idea of Nation.
I'm still working on the Indian Photographers book; now only 18 months behind schedule, but hopefully finished this spring! The trouble is I keep finding more and more material to add. I'm going to have to call a halt some day soon and just send it to the printers! Hope you're keeping well, Best Wishes, Hugh
