Dating Early Photographs by Latchmore, of Hitchin

Advert from Herts Express 4 April, 1867
This advert has helped me to date Thomas B Latchmore' early carte de visit as follows:

  • 1865 Opened studio in Bancroft Street, Hitchin - distinctive back
  • 1867 Opened a joint studio in Royston - distinctive back
  • 1869? Opened another studio in Stevenage - no back known 
  • 1870 Took over George Avery's studio in Brand Street, Hitchin - distinctive back. Studios in Hitchin and Royston apparently abandoned.
