Can anybody help me locate Bridge Street, Mile End, Bow, London?

I am looking for the photographic studio of Victor Beadel, New Gimes Studio, 142 Bridge Street, Mile End, Bow, London. (The largest studio in the East End).
He appears in directories from 1901 until 1930, also as Photographic Materials Dealer.

Map if possible, also any newspaper advertisements for him at this address.

Thanks for your assistance

Trying to find information on William Wilkins (possibly born 1837 in Poplar, East London). He is shown as operating the ‘East London School of Photography’ as Messrs. Wilkins, Rogers and Co from 429 Rodney Terrace, Mile End Road, Stepney, which opened on 10 August 1868 (W.R. and Co.) continued until about 1870 (taken over by John Charles Anthony Wagner).
In 1881, he is recorded as being a Photographic Artist, living as patient in Royal Ophthalmic Hospital, South Place, Finsbury. (I presume this to be Moorfields Eye Hospital?).

I have found a Charles Weston Wilkins (a Shipwright) who maybe his father? And a marriage to a Jane Dodd Rogers in 1859 who could be his wife? Although I may have the wrong family.

Any assistance gratefully received, regarding his family and career.
I am researching East London and Essex Photographers.

I trying to find details about Henry Constantine Jennings (1843 in Paris, France – Unknown). The son of Henry Constantine Jennings (1791 in Liverpool - 1873 in Lambeth) married to Marie Victorine Clery (1811 in Paris, France – Unknown). He was a Physician/Chemist and they obviously lived in France, later Southwark and then Camberwell.

Henry Constantine Jennings is a Photographic Artist in Camberwell in 1861 and marries Elizabeth Barry (in 1871). He was a photographer in Norwich, Norfolk and in Hastings, Sussex.
He also operated in Grosvenor Road, Kent and Bridge Street, Chester. Finally ending up in Romford Road, Manor Park, London (1890s).

I wonder if he or the family are connected to Henry Constantine Jennings [later Nowell], (1731–1819), collector, the son of Henry Jennings and his wife, Susannah Kent (1723–1791), who was baptized on 15 August 1731 at Shiplake, Oxfordshire, where his father owned the estate.

Any assistance appreciated

I am trying to find any info on William James Threadwell (21 Nov 1844 in Shoreditch, Middlesex - 1923 in West Ham, Essex). He was a Drawing Instrument Maker/Opitican married to Mary Ann Giles.
There is a trade card which credits him as operating the "Barking School of Photography, High Street Barking" (unkown date).
I can find no record of him having been a photographer and would appreciate any assistance in confirming him operating from these premises.

Family History Beginners Board / Trying to find Photographer - Albert Tippins
« on: Wednesday 31 May 17 14:55 BST (UK)  »
Albert Tippins was born 1842 in Kingsland, Hackney. He married Eliza Price Brown nee Roadley (born: 1839 in Grantham, Lincolnshire) in 1870 in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

In 1871, Albert Tippins is shown as a Photographic Artist, resident at
]Railway Hotel, GNR Station Road, Quarrington, Lincolnshire[/color], (I cannot find this place?) with his wife and step-daughter - Mary Coupland Brown.

In 1881, Albert Tippins is listed as a Photographer resident at No 1 Jermyn Street, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, with his wife and their children - Martha, Albert, George William, Ada Isabel and step-daughter - Mary Coupland Brown.

At some point the family moved to London and lived in Camberwell, where he died in 1890.
Any assistance regarding locations welcome and his fathers trade - William Jonathan Tippins was a Piano Maker in Hackney.

Family History Beginners Board / Trying to find P. Rayner - Photographer in Essex

Trying to find a professional photographer named - P. Rayner, Newport Photographic Studio, Warley, Essex, around 1900.
Cannot find him in census returns – any help appreciated

I am trying to find details of a photographer named William Wright who appears to have owned a number of studios in Stoke Newington, Bethnal Green, Cheapside - City of London, Islington and Stepney (between 1877 – 1911).

A reference on the PhotoLondon website gives him as William George Henry Wright, supposedly born in 1860 in Bethnal Green (Died in West Ham 1915) and married to Sarah Johnson (born: 1860 in Bethnal Green). Also that he was the son of Edward Wright?

There is an Edward Wright who was born 1831 in Broadwater, Sussex (Died 1893 in West Ham) who married Hannah (born: 1835 in Bow Common, Stepney).
He appears in 1881 as a Photographic Assistant resident at 12 Millfield Place, Stoke Newington* with Hannah and in 1891 as a Photographer resident at 71 Green Lanes, Stoke Newington*. He is also shown as the father of ‘George Wright’?.
*These addresses are also those of the studios of William George Henry Wright.

I can find no details on the family under variations of their Christian names or their partners.

I did find a reference to a William Edward Wright who seems to fit, but this states that he was born in 1852. “The son of a colour manufacturer, Wright arrived in London from his native Banbury in the mid - 1870s, and settled in West Ham, where he started a fancy goods business before diversifying into photography in 1877”.
Also that
“Wright retired to Southend, but at the end of his life returned to West Ham where he died in 1931”.

To further confuse the issue there is another photographer named William Edward Wright, who was born on 2 Nov 1852 in Poplar, Middlesex. He was married to Sarah Brazell (born: 1851 in Chinnor, Oxfordshire). I have researched him and believe his father was William (Walter) Wright born in 1824 in Mortlake, Surrey.
This William Edward Wright, had a studio at Sebert Road, Forest Gate (1890). As William Edward Wright & Sons, they had a number of studios in Forest Gate, as well as Walthamstow. Leyton. Ilford, Romford and Westcliff on Sea (circa 1917-1922).
His sons were - William Brazell Wright, Stanley Herbert Wright and Charles Edward Wright (all photographers).

I do not think he is related to the other Wright family.
If anyone can assist, I would be grateful,

I am researching early photographers and am trying to find details about Charles Pembroke Gearing (b.1820 in Hammersmith). Baptised on 16 Aug 1820 (Father: John Brooke Gearing). I believe he married Emma Goodenough (b.1822 in Sunbury on Thames). He was a photographer living in Beresford Street, Lambeth in 1861 and in Cheshire in 1871. In 1881 he is a widow in East Molesey.
(They may have had a son named Henry?).

Charles John Gearing (b.1860 in Walworth, Surrey) is shown as their son.Baptised on 28 Dec 1860. He was a photographer at Gleneagle House, Gleneagle Road, Streatham in 1891. I believe he may have owned a number of studios, including 52 Regent Street, Westminster (1891).Emma Frances Gearing, is also shown here.
Charles John Gearing died on 14 Aug 1933 in East, Dulwich, Surrey.

Their is reference to a Charles Henry James Gearing (photographer) but I can find no entries for him.

Any assistance welcome - Regards Bobfilm :)
