HANCOCK, Henry

 

            2½ & 3 Market Place, Leicester

HANCOCK, Henry

 

            189 Humberstone Road, Leicester

            WRLE 1892, WRLR 1894

 

The 25-year gap seems sufficient to justify this as a separate entry from Henry Hancock, above.

 

HANSON, George

 

            Market Place, Hinckley

            BUL 1867

 

            Regent Street, Hinckley

            BAL 1875, KL 1876, WL 1877

 

HARGRAVE, Archibald

 

See Mansfield Studio Co, where he worked as manager.

 

HARRISON, George

 

            54 Filbert Street, Leicester

 

Evidently an itinerant photographer, since ‘(trvllg)’ appears after his name.

            CG 1875

 

HART, Sidney

 

            48 Evington Street, Leicester

Aucott identifies him as the postmaster at Hallaton, who took and published postcard views in the early years of the 20th century.

The 11 King Richard’s Road address is preceded by ‘The West End Studio’ in WRLE 1892, where an unusually jocular advertisement claims ‘Established 1886’. BEL 1902 refers to 75 King Richard’s Road as the West End Studio and to Welford Place as the Central Studio. It adds: ‘Nat. Tel. No. 963’. WRLR 1909, WRLR 1911 and WRLR 1914 omit ‘Coronation Buildings’.
