Henry Joseph Whitlock

(1835-1918), Photographer; son of Joseph Whitlock and older brother of Frederick Whitlock

Artist associated with 132 portraits
Henry's father Joseph Whitlock was the first person to establish a permanent photographic studio in Birmingham, in 1843. In 1852 Henry Whitlock joined the family firm, and three years later he left Birmingham to set up his own studio in Worcester. He returned to Birmingham in 1862, after the death of both his parents, and founded the firm H.J. Whitlock & Sons of Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
