A List of Photographic Studios for some parts of England and Wales
in the Year 1868

by Roger F.Vaughan

This list has been extracted from Slater's Directory, 1868.
This should help anyone who wants to date a carte-de-visite photograph as it shows who was working in 1868. These are at least hard facts, not easy to come by!
See the bottom of this page for a list of other Victorian photographers producing cartes at various dates.
