Directory of Early Photographers in Cambridgeshire, T - Z
Mentioned by Reeve as a butler to the Master of St John's College, Cambridge, who took up photography as a hobby, and who later practised professionally and became official photographer to the university. Examples of his work in Reeve are dated 1896 and 1900.
TAYLOR, A & G
The Taylors’ firm was built up in the last twenty years of the 19th century. It became a chain of studios with at least half a dozen London addresses, over 30 branches around the British Isles and a handful in the United States. According to cartes apparently dating from the 1880s or later, one of their branches was in Cambridge. No directory evidence has been found of the firm’s presence in the county. Osman tentatively suggests ‘after 1891’ for the Cambridge studio, but gives no address.
The address appears as ‘St Mary Street’ in KC1864 and CYC1864. Titterton is described as ‘photographer & tobacconist’ in MOC1865/6 and HC1873.
TRENGROVE, J D
Whiffen has not been found in trade directories, but an early 20th century example of his work is marked ‘T Whiffen, Cambridge’.
It seems possible that he could be the same as H F White, below.

WRIGHT, Jasper J
This represents expansion into Cambridgeshire by a King's Lynn photographer. Fosbrook-Ream relates that the premises, known as the Art Studio, were acquired by Lilian Ream at the end of, or shortly after, the First World War. Renamed the Burlington Studio, they were used as a framing works. For details of Wright’s Lynn studio and other branches, see the Norfolk directory.
