Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I am researching some photographs by the British camera manufacturer and dealer James A. Sinclair, FRPS. (d.1940). A great deal seems to be known about his famous cameras; very little about himself. It may well be that his life is more familiar to specialists in cameras and the camera industry than to specialists in photographs themselves. I suspect, for example, that as an eminent dealer in the heart of London – and as the author of distinguished how-to books – Sinclair may well have had extensive correspondence with amateur photographers; but I have found no vestige of it so far.
If members have come across references to this once-eminent person in photographic circles, I would be glad if they would let me know.
