Directory of Early Photographers in Cambridgeshire D - G
DAVIES, Peter Hughes
Described as pharmaceutical chemist, photographer, and oil & colour man, HC1873.
DAVIS, Arthur J
(Studio note: 96 Lynn Road)
'Arthur' is believed to be a mistake for 'Alfred'.
ELY, T H [?]
Adamson records that Ely, the first Norfolk daguerreotype licensee, sought premises in Wisbech in 1844. His intention was to open a studio, but it is not clear whether the plan was actually carried out.
EMERSON, Peter Henry
Emerson (1856-1936) was not a studio photographer, but his historical importance makes it worth noting his association with the county. A champion of the naturalistic approach to photography, Emerson earned distinction with his photographs of East Anglian scenery and life. It was in Cambridge, in 1881, that he took up photography.
EMETT, Tom, Sharman Robbins &
A carte mount, apparently dating from the 60s or early 70s, refers to studios at 10 & 11 Rose Crescent, Cambridge, and High Street, Chatteris. Another carte, apparently from around 1880 or a little later, refers to studios at 13 Market Place and 17 Market Street, Cambridge.
GATES, Thomas George

GILLSON, Frederick W
GODDEN, John Harvey
GOODRICH & Sanderson
(Post Office Terrace)
According to Heathcote, Groom set up temporary studios at the premises of Mr Wade, boot and shoe maker, Wisbech, August/September 1855. Heathcote also notes that a David Groom, working as a photographer in Exeter in 1862, may have been the same man.
