GRAHAM, Pollard & Co
See also Pollard Graham, above. At some stage the business was known as Pollard Graham & Son. Kelvin Searle draws attention to a postcard of unknown date that uses this name, and that lists studios in Derby, Kettering and Wellingborough in addition to the Northampton operation. According to K Adamson's 'Professional Photographers in Derbyshire' (RPS), the Derby studio was active c1891-1913 (and possibly later).

The two addresses are likely to refer to the same studio. (See note to Arthur Healey, below.)
HANLON, Mrs B
HARTE & Co
HEALEY, Arthur F
‘Cathedral Studio, Cathedral Gateway’ in CAP 1901, CAP 1907 & CAP 1912. It seems reasonable to conclude that both addresses refer to the same studio. TC 1905/6 adds: ‘ late W Boughton & Sons; high art photographer; children a speciality; patronised by Royalty’. Some years’ directories give the spelling ‘Healy’. Most, including Kelly’s, insert the second ‘e’.

‘Phone No. 176’ is added in both directories.

KN 1914 and KN 1920 add ‘(art)’ after his name. KN 1914 concludes: ‘patronised by His Majesty the King & Her Majesty the Queen & members of the Royal Family &c’.
According to Heathcote, Joseph Jackolett was an itinerant photographer from Cork, who had worked in Dublin and Leeds in the late 1850s.

‘Photographer & tobacconist’ in HN 1876. His advertisement in TNA 1863 reads: ‘Photography!

J K has, at a very considerable outlay, purchased the Largest and Best Requisites for the purposes of Photographing Groups, Interiors, Mansions, Landscapes, Views, &c. Cartes: 10s 6d a dozen. The largest studio in the county.’
His lengthy advertisement in MN 1861 is given as a separate studio note.
