Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
William Robert Hogg worked as a photographer for Jabez Hughes of Ryde. He was frequently sent to photograph Queen Victoria at Osborne House. Later in life he ran a tobacconist shop and sub post office in the town but still recorded the area on his plate camera. The Isle of Wight Heritage service holds a collection of over 200 glass negatives of Hogg’s work of which 81 can be seen here. The photographs date from the 1910-1920s.
The Isle of Wight Heritage service also holds a collection of photographs by Sandown photographer James Dore 1854-1925.
