Tags: Birmingham Photography Carte De Visite Oldham & Cooper

Carte de visite of an unknown gentleman. Sadly, very many of these cards carry no information of the sitter, the likeness considered introduction enough.

What is most frustrating to me is that William Oldham of Oldham & Cooper did not leave an identifiable record of himself or any of his family members. His brother, John Seeley Oldham was a landowner and builder, made watercarts for Birmingham Corporation and was a licensed victualler of the Grand Junction Hotel in nearby Great Colmore Street: if anyone had a Carte de Visite made, then surely him!

Yes it is such a shame that the name is not usually on these, even handwritten on the back. Nonetheless they are lovely objects in their own right and, of course, they are part of the story of the photographic company.
