I recently came across a carte de visite which had been taken by Alfred Burton, who took photographs of Hoddesdon around 100 years ago. I was intrigued to see that he was also a taxidermist. and decided to find out more about him.
I discovered that he had been a gardener and then changed his career in a surprising way. Was he a gardener in a big house and his employer encouraged his interest in photography? Have a look at some of his photographs - and tell me if you know how his interest in photography and taxidermy came about.
