Oliver François Xavier Sarony

(1820-1879), Portrait photographer; brother of Napoleon Sarony

Sitter in 4 portraits
Artist associated with 13 portraits
Born in Quebec, Sarony trained as a daguerreotypist in New York before travelling to England. He set up his lavishly decorated studio in Scarborough in 1857, where people from all around the country travelled to be photographed. As his business brought a large amount of money to the town, the square in which his studio stood was renamed 'Sarony Square'. Although less known than his brother, Napoleon Sarony, he was one of the most successful provincial photographers of his time.
