Elliott & Fry exhibition prints, 1863-1930

The firm of Elliott and Fry, founded in 1863 was one of the most important in the history of studio portraiture in London. Opened by Joseph John Elliott (1835-1903) and Clarence Edmund Fry (1840-1897) their first premises were a series of studios at 55 Baker Street. In 1922 new premises were opened at 63 Baker Street where they remained until 1963. The firm employed a variety of operators who took the photographs including Francis Henry Hart and Alfred James Philpott in the Edwardian era, Herbert Lambert and Walter Benington in the 1920s and 1930s and subsequently William Flowers. In the early 1940s the studio was bombed and most of the early negatives were destroyed. Shortly after the firm's Centenary in 1963 it was taken over by and amalgamated with Bassano & Vandyk.
