Fred's family photos XIX: by William Lacey
Three pairs of photos which are surely dated between 1860 and 1890. Update: 'Greyfox' has found that the photographer was at this address from 1887-1892.
These are all on the cards of William Lacey, 20 Blackfriars Road - 'Negatives kept. Copies may be had.' The usual elaborate decorations on the reverse come in pairs, so the top two, for instance, can be assumed to be within the same period, then the next pair, etc. We've also guessed and copied in what may be date order, the top being credited to 'Lacey,' the next to 'W Lacey', the bottom to 'William Lacey'. We are guessing that the name becomes that much more informal.
