Trying to find photographers in Maldon, Essex
« on: Monday 14 January 13 14:55 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find information on three photographers who seem to be at the
Glendale Studio in Maldon Essex

John Rayne –around 1880 - 1899
Walter Wren Gladwin - around 1886 – 1890
Hazeltine Frost- around 1910

Apart from mentions of photographs they had taken in National Archives, can find no reference to them living in Maldon or their families

Any leads most welcome ;)

John Raine / Rayne marriage to Josephine Caroline Stodare, shows her father as Joseph Stodare - Actor. I'm wondering if this is Joseph Colonel Stodare  (28 June 1831 in Liverpool – 22 Oct 1866) a famous Victorian magician?

As it appears such an unusual first name,perhaps the Kelly's Directory entry is a business partnership name between Mr Hazeltine and Mr Frost.
