View Full Version : Photograph question
26-06-2006, 6:14 AM
I have a couple of carte de visite photographs taken by "H. Culliford" who seemed to have had a couple of studios across Wales (including Radnorshire). Has anyone come across Culliford's name in their research (ie: a trade directory)? I'm trying to find ascertain the time frame in which the photographs were taken.

Found this reference on the Ceredigion Archive site:
2. Extracts from 'The Professional Photographer'
regarding the Aberystwyth photographers H. H. Davies
and Son, H. G. Pickford (both of Pier Street) and
F. and H. Culliford (North Parade)

Thanks for the link Annie. It seems that H. Culliford must have been around for a while. Through analysing the clothing in the photographs, I concluded that they must have been taken in the late 1880s - 1890s.

A quick check on the 1891 census finds a Henry E Culliford aged 18, Photographer, living in Aberystwith (sic)

Wow! Thanks for the further hint Annie. It certainly helps me determine which of my ancestors the photographs are of. I'm going to do a check on the 1901 census records now.

Maybe worth a look at -
which is a site devoted to photographs etc and photographers.
I notice that Culliford in Aberystwyth is mentioned here also -
