Yes. This was the first Pyle who moved from Devon to London area.
He is my great grandfather.

Hi, Peter

There’s an article about the photographer here:

http://www.sussexpostcards.info/publishers.php?PubID=109

It does indicate that he operated from 38 Preston St, Brighton only from 1902, but this might only be that this is the earliest evidence the writer has found of him at that address.

One quote from the article does indicate that Aylesbeare might be a bit of a stretch for the photographer: “Although mainly a studio portraitist, Foster published many sepia real photographic cards of Brighton and Hove, as well as a few of more distant places such as Barcombe.” (If Barcombe was distant, Aylesbeare must have seemed a bloody long way! ;D) It does perhaps seem more likely that the photo was taken a bit closer to Brighton (or Hove where the photographer lived).
