Directory of Early Photographers in Leicestershire, H
Residence: 6 Aylestone Street. His advertisement at the back of the directory reads: ‘Hancock’s Photographic Portrait Gallery,2½ & 3 Market Place, Leicester. One portrait – 1s. Three portraits – 2s 6d. Six portraits – 4s 6d. Twelve ditto, two Positions – 6s 6d. Portraits taken for lockets, brooches, pins, &c. Old portraits copied. A Good Stock of Albums from 1s each. The New Cabinet Portrait on Low Terms. Note the address:- Prince of Wales Portrait Rooms, 2½ & 3 Market Place, opposite Cort & Pauls’. See also 'Leicestershire Prices' and another(?) Henry Hancock below.
The 25-year gap seems sufficient to justify this as a separate entry from Henry Hancock, above.
See Mansfield Studio Co, where he worked as manager.
Evidently an itinerant photographer, since ‘(trvllg)’ appears after his name.
HAWKE, F C
Aucott identifies him as the postmaster at Hallaton, who took and published postcard views in the early years of the 20th century.
HEALEY, H T
HEAWOOD & Co
HEAWOOD, John William
The 11 King Richard’s Road address is preceded by ‘The West End Studio’ in WRLE 1892, where an unusually jocular advertisement claims ‘Established 1886’. BEL 1902 refers to 75 King Richard’s Road as the West End Studio and to Welford Place as the Central Studio. It adds: ‘Nat. Tel. No. 963’. WRLR 1909, WRLR 1911 and WRLR 1914 omit ‘Coronation Buildings’.
HELMER, Thomas Frederick
EWITT, Brown &
This was the county’s first photographic studio, established in 1844. Joseph J Hewitt left the partnership in 1848. For more information, see ‘Brown & Hewitt’.
Photographer of Princes Street, Leicester. Known only from a carte de visite dating from (probably) the late 1860s or early 1870s.
HINCHCLIFFE, Mrs Ellen
A missed ‘e’ in the name seems likely. See Hinchcliffes and Hinchcliffe, above.
HITCHCOCK, Henry J
BEL 1902 precedes the address with ‘Lawn Studio’.
HOLYOAK, Henry & Son
HOUGHTON, Ernest C
HOWETT, W & Co
WRLE 1887/8 adds ‘Campbell Buildings’ at the beginning of the London Road address.
HUME, Thomas Oliver
‘Dealer in photographic materials’, but not necessarily also a photographer.
KL 1895 and KL 1899 omit ‘Aylestone’.
