Photographer information wanted - T.H Blackmore (Hull, UK)
« on: Friday 27 March 20 11:55 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone
Im trying to identify who the young lady in this photograph might be, and thought that knowing a bit about the photographer and when their studio was operating might help in this regard.
The photograph was taken, as you can see, by a T.H Blackmore, of Hull, UK. By searching Google, i can find other examples of his photos for sale on Ebay, indicating that his studio was located in Paragon Arcade in the city centre, but ive also found dates raging from the early 1890s, into the 1920s, which whilst not impossible (my 2x great grandfather was himself a photographer in Hull from the 1880s through the WW1), i would like some clarification on if possible?

Thanks
Adam

I would say this was a late war years up to the 1920s photo. In my book of Hull photographers, is a Thomas Norwood Blackmore who operated from 1888-1889 at Albion Street, which also in the city Centre. They could be could be related.

Thankyou for the reply Treetotal, i appreciate it :) If it is who i think it is, then the 1920s fits perfectly!

You say you have a book on Hull photographers? Is this one you have written yourself, or one you own? My 2x Great Grandfather was a William Mortimer Edmonds, who was a photographer at 123 Witham from the 1880s to roughly WW1. I would be interested to hear what information you might have on him?

The photograph looks like the signature is T H rather than T N

1911 1 Wilberforce St Hull Yorkshire-East Riding. (free index)

T H Blackmore - single - photographer, born about 1888 Hull, Yorkshire, E

Thomas Herbert Blackmore of Paragon Arcade Hull, who was also known for his studio portraits, made this real photographic card circa 1915. He was active between 1912 and the 1930s and his few known postcard views display a high standard of photography and are recognisable by his simple rubber stamp mark on the reverse.

Hi, it is just a thin paperback that is ex-library and has this:

Edmonds William Mortimer 123, Witham, 1888-1903 and 13, Witham 1908-1910-
