A-Z DIRECTORY OF CAMBRIDGESHIRE PHOTOGRAPHERS
Though included in some Cambridgeshire trade directories, Newmarket is (and, for the most part, was) in Suffolk, and is dealt with in the Suffolk Directory. Though now part of the Isle of Ely, Peterborough was, in Victorian and Edwardian times, in Northants. It does not, therefore, figure in this listing.

The following conventions have been adopted for the ordering and presentation of entries:
Individuals are listed before any non-family partnerships that include them.
Partnerships appear under the names of both (or all) partners.
Where a photographer embarked on more than one partnership, those partnerships are listed in alphabetical order of the partner who is not the focus of the entry.
Addresses are listed in order of their earliest appearance.
Imprecise addresses (those which name only the town/village, or those which give a street but no number) are recorded separately. They may, of course, refer to a studio listed more precisely elsewhere in that photographer’s entry.
Additional notes are set in italics.
