Hi,

Can anyone tell me if there was a photographer in 471 Sauchiehall St. Glasgow by the name of Clarke Barry ? He took a Glasgow Uni graduation photo on 26 June 1916 of a graduate named William Gardner M.A.

I would like to trace the identity of a second person who appeared in the photo.

Regards,

Daryl

A Google search brings up a photographer in Glasgow called Clarke Barry. The photo remarked upon was dated 1910 so the chances are he is your man though there is no address given. The link is to a PDF file so I can't easily post it here but it is the first hit if you Google "Clarke Barry" Glasgow.

A Barry family in Edinburgh with Clarke as a second name is found here:

http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/pp/pp_barry.htm

It states:

"1881 Census

William James Clarke Barry was listed in the 1881 census:

Photographer: aged 21

Born: London

Son of William B, artist - landscape & marine + Elizabeth Ann B

Resident: 84 Constitution Street, South Leith, Edinburgh"

Maybe there is a connection?

Good luck with your search.
