ROBINSON, Frederick William
‘Painter & photographer’ in WN 1874. The reason for Robinson’s inclusion in Northamptonshire directories is not clear. Adamson (2) shows this Lincolnshire photographer at 21 High Street, Stamford, 1868-82.

SEAMAN, H J
This was probably Harold John Seaman, the seventh son of Alfred Seaman. Alfred (a studio and stereoscopic photographer, and a founder member of the Photographic Convention of the United Kingdom) practised initially in Derbyshire, before he and his sons established a number of other studios around the country. Bradley believes Harold Seaman had a slightly earlier studio at 18 Abington Street.

It would be surprising if this were not really Charles Speight, below.
Charles Eyles Speight, one of a family of Rugby photographers, worked in Kettering until his death in 1939. (His daughter, Helen, then took over the running of the studio.) He was at the Broadway studio by 1896 at the latest, and he moved to the studio in London Road in the spring of 1900. For more information on the family and his books about them, visit John Frearson’s website.
According to Heathcote, Spring set up his studio at 13 Albert Place in 1855. He also repaired accordions and concertinas.
