Name:  EDELSTEIN, William (Willy)    b:1871 Netherlands   d:?
Address: Osborne House, 38 Hills Road, Cambridge
Working Dates: March 1888-91 in Cambridge
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information:

An advertisement in the Cambridge Daily News on 8 October 1888 p1 announced Edelstein's intention to open a studio in Cambridge This appeared immediately above the regular advertising of Post Office Terrace photographers Valenting Blanchard and Lunn. Willy announced: "W.Edelstein from Berlin wishes to announce that he has opened his studio for high art photography at Osborne House, Hills Road, Cambridge. Studio being built for convenience on ground floor on the newest and most compact system to suit the Art of Photography, and having all necessary arrangements to obtain really beautiful lights and shades, and with the experience he has had on the continent as well as with some of the leading firms in England, hopes, with the class of work he intends introducing to the publioc, to receive their confidence and be favoured with a share of their patronage. In the reception and waiting rooms patrons will find a nice collection of specimens of his works. The dressing rooms, which are well fitted, will offer every convenience, W.Edelstein, High Art Photographer. Appointments for sittings should be made to avoid the inconvenience of waiting". The Cambridge Independent Press on 8 March 1889 announced an early marketing strategy: "W. EDELSTEIN, Art Photographer, of Osborne House, Hills Road, will, during the month of March, make highly-finished cabinet photo of any Lady, Gentleman or Child for 1s 6d. To show the public the class of work he does produce". In the 1891 Census return (5th April 1891), the enumerator simply notes that 38 Hills Road Cambridge is "occupied as a photographic studio only". The 1891 and 1892 Kelly's Directories for Cambridgeshire show William Edelstein listed as a resident at that address as well as being listed for the same address in the commercial section as a photographer. Willy Edelstein, photographer, was a Freemason, initiated in November 1890 into the Cambridge Lodge of Three Grand Principles No 441. He continued to pay his Lodge dues until the end of 1894, resigning from January 1895. Below is a carte de visite by William Edelstein from the collection of David Gobbitt. The sitter is Frederick William Gobbitt (1858-1924) of Woodbridge, Suffolk, who was a grocer. His wife, Grace Buckingham Morris (1851-1920), was born in Cambridge, which may explain why Frederick was visiting the town around 1890, several years after their marriage in 1881. The face of the mount has the legend "W Edelstein Hills Road Cambridge Copyright". The addition of the word "copyright" is frequently found on the mounts of published portraits of well known individuals - produced in the highly competitive market for collecting cartes. It is far less usual to see this on the more every-day portraits from local studios. The reverse of the carte has a design with angels seated each side of a crest with the initials "WE", with a motto "Lucem Umbrae Adjungo" (I add light to shade?) followed by "Edelstein High Art Photographer Osborne House, Hills Road, Cambridge. Additional copies may always be had by quoting this no. Manufactured in Berlin for Samuel Fry and co, 5 Chandos Street, London WC" The carte has a red edge. Below this is a second carte de visite from the author's collection of a lady in a lace hat. This seems to be in every respect similar to the previous example except that on the face of the mount the address includes as a first line "Osbourne House" - which could have been concealed in the first example by poor positioning of the photograph on the mount.

No obvious connections can be found between William Edelstein and anyone listed in the census returns for England. This is strange, given the unusual nature of his surname. It could be that his name has been wrongly transcribed - but it is more likely that he came to Cambbridge and then left the area between census dates. He claimed in his 1888 advertisement to he was "from Berlin" (which may not have meant that he was actually born in Berlin) and the wording of his 1889 advertisement might also suggest that English was not his first language. PhotoLondon records a photographer, Willy (William) Edelstein, son of a lace merchant, who was born in 1871 in the Netherlands. He apparently had 5 brothers and one sister and ran a photographic studio at 100 Westbourne Grove, Bayswater, Paddington, from 1891-1892. This could be the same person. PhotoLondon has no further details of this photographer's life. One possible explanation for this is that this could be the same William Edelstein b: Holland 3/7/1871, who settled in the USA, arriving there from Quebec in 1914 and petitioning for naturalisation in the Southern District Court in New York on 5th September 1930. Also in his family at that time was Rebecca Edelstein (wife, sister or daughter?).

Carte de visite by W Edelstein

Name:  EDIS, (Mary) Olive, after marrying in 1928 Mary Olive GALSWORTHY   b: 1876 Marylebone   d:1956
Address: Church Street, Sheringham 1908   New Studio, South Street, Sheringham, Norfolk, 32 Ladbrooke Square, London
Working Dates: c. 1908 - 1940s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: Olive Edis was the daughter of Arthur Wellesley Edis b:1841 Huntingdon (who, despite his military forenames was an eminent physician). Olive was not, strictly speaking, a Cambridgeshire photographer, having a studio with her sister in Norfolk. However, she undertook portrait work for Cambridgeshire subjects and had a number of annual exhibitions in Cambridge at the St Columba's Hall, Downing Street in 1925, 26 and 27 of her portrait and landscape work. Her Wikipedia entry makes it clear that Olive was an important practitioner of her art. Robert Pols' website describes Olive as follows: In addition to running a fashionable studio, Olive Edis (1876-1955) also created a photographic archive of the Sheringham fishing community. The only female photographer to be thus singled out, she was commissioned to record the work of the Womens' Services at the end of the First World War. Norfolk historian Christopher Pipe draws attention to the collection of her photographs - including some autochromes - at the Cromer Museum, and to the book 'Face to face, Sheringham, Norfolk: the remarkable story of photographers Olive Edis and Cyril Nunn' by Alan Childs, Ashley Sampson and Cyril Nunn (Tiverton: Halsgrove, 2005). (Cyril Nunn, who carried on her work, falls outside the timescale of this directory.) A small selection of her photographs can be found on the Cromer Museum website. Olive married Edwin Henry Galsworthy in 1928. In 1947 the Cambridge Evening News wrote of her: "Mrs E.H. Galsworthy has established a reputation as a photographer under the professional (and maiden)  name of Miss Olive Edis. She started taking photographs 41 years ago and has no less than 35,000 ordinary negatives stored away. Mrs Galsworthy has specialised in colour work, using Lumiere plates and her collection must be almost unique for it comprises a cross section of some of the most notable men and women of the last generation. There are a number of Cambridge personalities, many of whom were personally known to her for Cambridge is what she calls her "third home". They include Lord Rutherford, Sir J.J. Thomson and Dr M.R. James (Provost of Kings). Connections with the town date back to her early days and before her marriage she held annual exhibitions of her work in St Columba's Hall, St Andrew's Street"

Name: ELLIS, William b:1794 d: 1872.
Address: Wisbech
Working dates: 1850s, 1860s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: William Ellis was an English missionary and author, born in London. When he was four years old Ellis's family moved to Wisbech. As a youth Ellis worked as a gardener before applying to the London Missionary Society to train as a Missionary. He was ordained in 1815 and during his training learned skills in printing and bookbinding. Eliis was first posted to the South Sea Islands, where he travelled extensively and helped establish a number of missionary stations. In 1824 he returned to England and took a number of positions with the London Missionary Society. Ellis also published a number of ethnographic, geographic and natural history works. In 1853 Ellis went to Madagascar as the official emissary of the London Missionary Society. Before leaving the UK Ellis learned skills as a photographer from Roger Fenton and took a number of photographs during his travels. After three attempts Ellis was able to visit Madagascar which he described in a book "Three visits to Madagascar". On his return to the UK Ellis gave a lecture on the country in Wisbech in 1860 and his portrait of King Radama II was displayed at the Wisbech Working Mens Institute. In 1861 he returned to Madagascar delivering another talk on the country in Wisbech in 1867. Ellis was a member of Wisbech Working Mens Institute and after his death fellow member Samuel Smith printed a number of his photographs. Another Institute member, Arthur Balding, published a portrait of Ellis in 1872. A number of Ellis's photographs are held by the Wisbech and Fenland Museum. We are grateful to Garry Monger for pointing out that we should include Ellis on this site as a talented and important early photographer with his roots in Wisbech.

Name:  ELY, T.H.            b. n/k      d.n/k
Address: A Semi itinerant Norfolk based photographer who may have visited Wisbech
Working Dates: 1843-1846
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: T.H.Ely is a photographer about whom very little is known. It is by no means certain that he warrants inclusion on a site relating to Cambridgeshire Photographers. He expressed an interest in setting up a studio in Wisbech in January / February 1844 and the local press recorded that, at about this time, a photographer visited Theatre Yard Wisbech to show his work. This may or may not have been Ely. Research into this has been hampered by the fact that there were no local Wisbech newspapers published at the time of Ely's interest. In the hope that further information about him may be discovered, we have therefore included Ely here: What we know about Ely has been set out in this page.
References: We are most grateful to Garry Monger for drawing attention to the possible Wisbech visit by T.H.Ely.

Name:   EMENY, Clement J  b:  1883 Walton Suffolk     d:
Address: 40 Carlisle Road, Cambridge
Working Dates: c. 1911
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: The 1911 census shows Clement at the above address, boarding with an army pensioner and his family. His occupation is shown as "photograph operator", a worker. Clement was the son of Charles J Emeny b: 1846 Wickham Market Suffolk, a photographer and store Manager. Clement's older brother Charles F Emeny b: 1871 Alderton Suffolk, was also a photographer. Robert Pols site suggests that the Emeny photographic family operated businesses at different times in Walton, Felixstowe and Sudbury. The firm's name was Emeny and Sons in 1911, suggesting that perhaps the 1911 census caught Clement in Cambridge on some sort of assignment for his family firm.

In 1883 their first son, Leonard Ainsworth, was born in Cambridge, the next year daughter Sibyl was also born in Cambridge. In 1882 Peter was elected a member of the Photographic Society, London, and exhibited 5 images in their annual exhibition that year.Two of his prints were entitled "On the Granta" and one "Saffron Walden". At that time he was living at 4 Parkside, Cambridge. Received his Cambridge BA in 1884, MB in 1885. In the same year he was made a Fellow of the Photographic Society. Became House Physician and Sambrooke Medical Registrar, King's College Hospital but was of independent means and didn't practice medicine for long (his family ran a sugar plantation in Cuba). Daughter Gladys was born in 1886 at Hampstead London. On the night of the 1891 census he was at Ludham, Hickling, Norfolk, his occupation was shown not as a medic but as "author and engraver" and he was with a servant who was described as a "waterman". Daughter Zoe Orchis was born at Broadstairs Kent in 1892 and son Ralph Billing in 1897 at Oulton Suffolk. In 1901 Peter was living at Slowewood, Pokesdown Hampshire, occupation described as "BA and MB (Cantab) - author".

He had been at this address since at least 1904 according to the RPS Membership list of that year. A great proponent of naturalistic photography which he argued was an art form in its own right. His publications included: "Paul Ray at the hospital, a Picture of Student Life" 1882, "Naturalistic Photography for Students of the Art", London 1890, "On English Lagoons: Being An Account of Two Amateur Wherryman on the Norfolk and Suffolk Rivers and Broads", London 1893, "Tales from Welsh Wales, Founded on Fact and Current Tradition", London 1894, "Caoba the Guerilla Chief - a Tale of the Cuban Rebellion", London 1897, "Birds beasts and fishes of the Norfolk broadland" 1895, "Marsh Leaves" 1895, "Further notes on the Emerson alias Emberson family of counties Herts and Essex", 1919. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states "Emerson was a photographic revolutionary who set the tenor for the method of picture making which evolved into pictorialism and later into modernism. He was also a magniloquent writer and a fighter for photography as fine art. " His interest in photography started while he was in Cambridge. Peter deposited 62 photographs at Stationers Hall for copyright purposes, mainly images from Norfolk and Suffolk from 1890-95. There are a few images from 1884, location not stated, which might be from Cambridgeshire, although Peter's address was shown as Wellesley House, Southwold, Suffolk..

Name:  EWING, ?             b:       d:
Address: Peterborough
Working Dates: c. 1865-75
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: We only know of the existence of this photographer from the survival of this rare carte de visite, late 1860s, early 1870s, of an unknown young lady. The mount is plain white card with square corners. On the face, unusually on the corner of the image, the photographer's name, "Ewing", appears in manuscript. The reverse is printed in red and has a royal coat of arms of some sort and the three words "Ewing Photographer Peterborough". This is from the Simon Shirley collection.
References: After much research, it has been established that this is a Peterborough Ontario photographer. In the 19th century a small local business would not have included a country in its address, but international movement of people and collectable items means that old photographs from one country can easily turn up in another, as is the case here. Fraser Dunford wrote an excellent article on the 60+ professional photographers of Peterborough Ontario: “Peterborough Photographers, 1847-1900” in “The Heritage Gazette of the Trent Valley. Volume 6, number 2, August 2001” at p24, which is available online at: http://trentvalleyarchives.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/2-copy-August-2001.pdf). We have left this entry here as a reminder that unknown photographers might need to be researched in multiple countries.
