IOW Photographers P-Z

The table below is a summary of the data compiled from various sources including advertisements, trade directories, census returns and, especially, submissions from people holding photographs of that era. I would welcome any further 'evidence' to fill in the gaps and make the database more useful.

Names in blue indicate links to dedicated pages where more comprehensive information is available.

In the table, confirmed dates are shown in black and those estimated in blue. Negative numbers are shown in red, but their position on the table does not infer a date unless accompanied by a date in the same cell. Also note that not being listed in a trade directory does not imply the photographer was not in business at that time.
