Name:  HIGGINS, Mrs Elizabeth  b:1828 Stamford Lincs  d: 1899 Stamford
Address: Stamford, Lincs – Although just outside the county, this photographer would have had customers in the northernmost villages of the present Cambridgeshire. In December 1855 H. Higgins. photographer, Stamford, advertised that s/he wanted to buy a portable glasshouse (Stamford Mercury 28 December 1855 p3). The 1861 census shows Mrs Elizabeth Higgins in Maiden Lane Stamford. Living with her was Henry A Higgins (b:1826 Newport Pagnell), strangely described as a "lodger". Henry was a chemist's assistant, Elizabeth a photographic artist. In 1871 the couple were in St Mary's St, Stamford, clearly shown as husband and wife. Henry was shown as a retired druggist. Elizabeth was described as an artist. Living with them was a niece, Ann B Hopgood, also shown as an artist. The family must have been reasonably well off as they had two servants. By 1881 Elizabeth was again shown as a photographer, assisted in her business by her two nieces, Annie B Hopgood (b:1850 Crowland Lincs) and Mary Hopgood (b:1855 Stamford Lincs). In 1891 Elizabeth was at 19 St Georges Square, Stamford, living on her own means. Her two nieces were still with her, both described as photographers, Annie was an employer, Mary as employee, presumably carrying on her business.
Working Dates: 1854-1880s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: See below early carte de visite (Author’s collection) portrait of a young girl, late 1860s. The photograph is mounted on cream board, square corners, reverse has a crest  and “Mrs E Higgins Photographer, Stamford”. Below this is a second carte which appears to show the same girl a year or two older. This second carte is from around 1871 and shows Rachel Clara COLMAN, who was born in London 2nd April 1861 and died in Joigny France in 1921. There is no information about her childhood outside the census of 1871, which shows Rachel, her sister Kate, her brother Edmund  and two other children, were boarders in the vicarage at Ryhall near Stamford, Lincs (page 24 and 25 of census). Rachel went (between 1871 and 1874) to Bordeaux, adopted with her sister by her father's cousin, Aaron Gomes DA COSTA and his wife Françoise SAVARIN. Rachel is an ancestor of Annette DULOY who spotted the similarity between the first carte in the author's collection and the second in her possession, and has kindly permitted the use of her carte on this site. Another family historian, Joan Dingle from Canada, has in her possession the identical carte de visite to the first one shown below. This was one of 100 cartes de visite in an album which her ancestors, Edward BURDETT [1842-1917] and his wife Elizabeth Ellen née ATTENBOROUGH [1848-88] took with them in 1883 when they emigrated from England to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Joan feels that the sitter is therefore likely to be a member either the Burdett or Attenborough families. Below this is a carte of an unknown man standing beside the same table as seen as a prop on the previous carte. The condition of the print has suffered more with the ravages of time than the first two. The mount is cream with square corners and no print on the face. The reverse states "Mrs E Higgins photographic artist Stamford Lincolnshire established 1854 negatives kept copies can always be had". There is also a crown above the garter, suggesting Royal patronage. The pudding basin bowled suggests this may be 1860-70. So this this third carte may be the older design - certainly "photographic artist" tends to be a phrase used before, rather than after the simple "photographer". Against this, the claim for Royal patronage represented by the crown, and claim for an early date of establishment are usually claimed repeatedly once adopted by a business.

Address: 15 Kings Parade, later 19 Kings Parade
Working Dates: In Cambridge 1868 - 1940. The firm overall operated from 1852 to the present day.

Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information:
The firm was established in 1852 and a continuation of a branch of the firm still exists today in Buckinghamshire. One of the more prolific and successful Victorian photographers - in their heyday they had branches in Oxford, Cambridge, London, Harrow, Rugby, Aldershot, Yorktown and Eton. They also achieved royal patronage.

Approximate dates for the firm's studios outside Cambridge are:
48 Porchester Terrace Bayswater 1868-9
36 Porchester Terrace Bayswater 1868-1886
47 Sloane Square Chelsea 1893-95
Oxford 1852-1935
Aldershot 1865-1879
Harrow 1861-1901 (negatives and records survive - see this interesting article about tracing his ancestors in the Harrow archive by David Sansom, originally from Harrow, now living near Cambridge)
Eton 1864- still operating
Rugby, Sandhurst and Yorktown dates not known

Robert Hills Senior (b:1822 Lambeth) was a hairdresser in Oxford. From the range of hairdressing related services he offered, Hills obviously had an entrepreneurial approach to his business. In 1852 he described himself as an “artist in hair”, and advertisements show that he turned ladies’ and gentlemen’s own hair into watchguards, bracelets, brooches and rings on the premises. This probably led him to an interest in photography, and he founded the photographic business in Oxford in 1852. In 1861 Robert Hills Snr lived and carried on his business in Corn Market Street Oxford with his wife Annie (b:1833 Derbyshire), and children, Robert Junior, Henry James and Annie. Two other daughters were at boarding school on the census night. The household had 2 servants and Robert senior was described in the census return as a "Photographic artist employing 10 men, 2 women and 3 boys" .

The partnership "Hills and Saunders" dates from 1861 when Robert Hills Senior went into partnership with another former hairdresser, John Henry Saunders (b:1836 Cumnor). Saunders ran the firm's studio at Eton. In 1877 Saunders became the son-in-law of Robert Hills Senior, marrying Hills' daughter Elizabeth.

Hills and Saunders 1864 advertisement

Hills and Saunders advertisement from the Oxford Journal of 23rd April 1864 - the firm advertised extensively in the local press

In 1868 Oct 3 – there was an advertisement in the Cambridge Chronicle heralding the arrival in the town of "The Oxford Photographic Gallery, Hills and Saunders, photographers by special appointment to HM The Queen". Cartes de visite could be finished in oil or watercolour and negatives were preserved to allow copies to be made at any time. In the 1880s they were also producing greetings cards with local views, some coloured. In 1870 there was a serious fire at the Kings Parade premises, the firm losing considerable stock, which fortunately was insured. (Cambridge Independent Press 8th October 1870)

In 1871 Robert Hills Senior had moved with his family to 15 Kings Parade Cambridge. Robert senior was described as a photographer. Robert Junior, then aged 19 years, was described as a "photographer's assistant". Also present in the household were Robert Senior's other children: Elizabeth b:1847, Mary S. b:1849 and Henry James. b:1858.

In 1881 Robert Hills Junior, (b:1852 at Oxford), was living on the firm's premises at 15 Kings Parade Cambridge with his wife Helena Louise Hills, (b:1857 Cambridge), with their two infant children Robert A. Hills (b:1880) and Charles E. (b:1881). With them were a domestic servant and a nursemaid. Robert Hills Senior and the rest of his family had by this point returned to Oxford where he was employing 13 men and 6 boys. Robert Senior died in Oxford in 1882 (his estate was valued at almost £30,000). It appears that at this stage the firm was divided up among members of the family. Robert Senior's wife Ann and son Henry James Hills ran the Oxford business, but in July 1889 they gave notice in the London Gazette that their partnership was dissolved, Ann continuing the business.

Robert Hills Jnr took over the running of the Cambridge business from 1882, but without any capital to ensure its successful operation. Worse still he had agreed to pay the estate of his late father some £6,500 for the goodwill of the business, to be paid in annual installments of £800. In the event, none of these payments were made. Despite the business being under-funded, Robert took on another branch of the business, a studio in St Mary's Passage formerly run by Edward William Nichols. The branch traded as Hills & Co and was operated until June 1888. In the 1891 census Robert Hills Junior is shown as the occupier of 15 Kings Parade, listed as a photographer with his wife, 5 children and 2 servants. Robert obviously struggled to keep the business afloat, sinking gradually into debt. In February 1892 Robert filed for bankruptcy. His gross debts totaling some £831 and his assets valued at £817. When examined Robert stated that the business was making about £100 per year - the photography business was very competitive. "People always run like a flock of sheep to any new place, coming to the old places for credit" he observed, "but taking their ready money to the new". He had by this time been taking his own photographs and had dismissed his operators. The Cambridge office of the firm closed after bankruptcy in 1892. The receiver had hoped the business could be sold as an ongoing entity, but this was not to be and on 28th and 29th June 1892 a sale was advertised of all the "modern furniture together with the remaining stock in trade, fixtures, trade utensils and requisites of a high class photographer and picture dealer". The Cambridge Independent Press announced on 27 Jan 1893 that following the business failure of Robert Hills, trading as Hills and Saunders of Cambridge a dividend was announced, first and final, of 5 shillings.

However, after a short break the name of Hills and Saunders continued in use as photographers at 19 Kings Parade for more than another 30 years. It is not clear how this resurrection of the firm came about in Cambridge - perhaps another part of the former Hills and Saunders firm took it over, perhaps someone else bought the goodwill or took on the business as an entity in the 11th hour and continued trading in the same name. The firm appears in local trade directories at 19 Kings Parade until 1940. This was definitely not a continuing series of directory errors - there are other clues as to their presence. In the Cambridge Independent Press 25 Feb 1918 the firm was advertising for a re-toucher to work for them either from home or at 19 Kings Parade. In the Cambridge Daily News 29 March 1920 the firm was advertising a mahogany counter, originally designed for a bank, for sale at 19 Kings Parade. By 1939 the occupant of the premises was photographer and fine art dealer Walter Gilbert Blackall. Blackall's father, Walter Blackall (b: 1846 Theale Berks) was a photographer in Folkestone (9 Church Street) and later in Oxford (9 Magdalene Street 1889-1894 and 33A Cornmarket Street 1894-1907). By 1911 Walter Gilbert Blackall and his sister Bertha, by then both photographers, had moved from Oxford to Cambridge. Walter Gilbert Blackall had some sort of connection with Hills and Saunders in Oxford. It is possible that his father may have worked for Hills and Saunders before setting up himself in business in the same street in Oxford. In addition, the National Archives record the registration at Stationers Hall of two photographs of the famous medic, Professor Osler of Oxford, in July 1905, copyright author Gilbert Walter Blackall, 328 Banbury Road Oxford, copyright owner Hills and Saunders Oxford (TNA COPY1/487/427 and COPY1/487/426). The 1921 Census lists three employees of Hills and Saunders in Cambridge. These were: BANYARD, Floss M. ; CHIPPERFIELD, Louise and GARDINER, Christopher H.

Robert Hills Jun continued to work as a photographer, presumably in the employment of others. On 8th December 1898 he registered 22 of his photographs at Stationers' Hall for copyright purposes showing himself as the photographer and the copyright owner as GW Wilson & Co. GW Wilson was George Washington Wilson and Co of 2 Saint Swithin Street, Aberdeen ( one of the most successful and prolific photographic companies in the UK. The series of photographs taken by Robert Hills for Wilsons was of Clumber and Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. When Robert Hills registered these photographs at Stationers' Hall he included Wilson's catalogue number for each. So, for example, we know that the photograph of Clumber Bridge, No 6631 in GW Wilson's catalogue was actually taken by Robert Hills and was registered at Stationers' Hall by Robert Hills, and the registration document appears in The National Archives, reference COPY 1/438/648. The actual image can be seen here on the University of Aberdeen's web site This arrangement with GW Wilson may have been short lived or the arrangements for securing copyright may have changed. There are over 800 registrations of Wilson's photographs recorded at Stationers Hall, but just 23 are jointly recorded in the names of Wilson and Robert Hills. The 23rd image is of the East Front of Kings College Cambridge No 3430 in Wilson's catalogue which was registered at Stationers' Hall on 10/11/1902. The address shown for Robert Hills on the registrations at Stationers' Hall in 1898 and 1902 was 8, Beaconsfield Place, Cambridge, but the 1901 census recorded Robert Junior and his family at 67 Chesterton Road Cambridge - no longer running his own business, he was shown as a photographer and an employee. Robert Hills Junior died in 1910.

See below two cartes de visite from the author's collection. The one on the left appears to be the older – the card mount having square corners, the other rounded. Also the one on the right refers to the firm having more locations (Cambridge, Oxford, Rugby, Eton, Harrow, London, Aldershot and Yorktown) while the older card only lists Cambridge, Oxford, Eton, Harrow and London. Both of these mounts are specific to Cambridge. Both refer to “by appointment to Her Majesty”. The later mount is designed by Marion, Paris. The third carte de visite of a lady with brooch is another Marion mount, with "By Appointment to Her Majesty" and specifies Cambridge, but without an address. It lists studios at Cambridge, Oxford, Rugby, Eton, Harrow and London and so fits between the first two examples. The next, of an unknown academic, is probably the next in sequence, being similar to the last but including details of the Cambridge address. Again this mount is by Marion, with the code .marion /.

Hills and Saunders also took photographs outside the studio and competed with other local firms for University and College work. The next photograph from the author's collection illustrates the high class work done by the firm for University and college clients. The photograph is of the Athenaeum Club Cambridge, dated 1908, by Hills and Saunders. It is a formal portrait of all members of the club with 15 members and 6 dogs seated at a college sports ground, four other portraits  added to the mount, all are named, including the dogs! The mount is labeled "Hills and Saunders, Cambridge".  Print 14 x 11 in, in oak frame 20 x 23 in, calligraphy in silver and white. The photograph is a durable black carbon print – not albumen. The next print 9 x 4.75 in is of competitive rowing on the Cam from the 1920s and has the name "Hills & Saunders" embossed on the lower RH corner of the print and mount. Next is a midget Christmas greeting carte de visite depicting Pembroke College Cambridge. The carte measures 46 x 83mm and is probably from around 1900. On the reverse is printed "A joyous Christmas to You" and the firm's name is impressed on the reverse using a hand embossing machine (with grateful thanks to Ron Cosens

Name:  HINLEY, John   b:        d:
Address: Lynn Road Wisbech
Working Dates: 1880s
Subjects, styles, advertising, other relevant information: This Lynn Road studio, originally opened by Valentine Blanchard, was later operated by John Hinley, then Alfred Drysdale. Lilian Ream started her photographic career as a young pupil of Alfred Drysdale. The studio was later taken over by Hardingham Mehew and Leonard Smith. Around 1909 Lilian Ream took over the Studio and Mr Smith became the assistant. Hinley called this the "Parisian Studio". See below a carte de visite (author's collection) head and shoulders portrait of an unknown man. On the face of the mount is printed "Jno Hinley Lynn Road Wisbech". The mount is cream and has a gilt edge. The design on the rear includes a tortoise, bamboo, a first class medal awarded in Cornwall for artistic photography in 1880, and the name of the studio - "the Parisian Studio Lynn Road Wisbech". Hinley is styled "Jno Hinley". Below this is a cabinet photograph from the early days of Drysdale's operation, where he simply overstamped his name on Hinley's mount. Hinley's mount is on high gloss cream card, very similar to the carte de visite above but with additional border patterns on the reverse. (author's collection). No trace has yet been found of this photographer in the 1881 or 1891 census returns. The Wisbech Standard - Friday 12 July 1889 p5 records, "An excellent portrait of the Mayor in his robes and chain of office has just been taken by Mr John Hinley, photographer of Lynn Road."
