Old Photograph
« on: Thursday 03 March 11 12:25 GMT (UK) »
I am attempting to date an old photograph. It is a Carte de Visite taken by
H Graham Glen who had premises at 2a Commercial St Leeds.
Can anyone inform me as to the period when he was in business in Leeds.
He originally came from Torquay.
Thank you

Molloy (Nottingham, Manchester?)

Rooting about I found this:

Thank you to William Marshall Glen who wrote:

Great Grandfather

"Henry Graham Glen was my great grandfather.  He operated a photography business in Edinburgh followed by Belfast, Belfast & Lugan, Torquay and then Leeds.

In Leeds he started a printing & publishing business.  I have the dates and other details.

There was a second company in Leeds called H G Glen which was operated by two of Henry's sons 1905 to circa 1935, which primarily printed postcards.

In 1990 my wife and I published a book (200 pages with many photos) on the Glen family which includes details on the photography and bagpipe businesses.  Copies are still available."
