Arthur Henry Shaw

leave a comment »




Again from the first page of Lavinia‘s album. Lavinia wrote “Arthur” on the back and Mary Shaw added the caption, “Arthur ?1871”.

Arthur was born in June 1859 and this looks like a boy 12-14 years old so 1871 to 1873?

I’ll go with 1873 as Carlton Portrait Rooms was operated at 221 Lygon Street by William Bear from 1873 until 1877 (Trove People) and a search of Trove for the business’ advertising returned entries only between mid 1873 and 1875.
