This was probably Harold John Seaman, the seventh son of Alfred Seaman. Alfred (a studio and stereoscopic photographer, and a founder member of the Photographic Convention of the United Kingdom) practised initially in Derbyshire, before he and his sons established a number of other studios around the country. Bradley believes Harold  Seaman had a slightly earlier studio at 18 Abington Street.
