Elliott & Fry

(active 1863-1962), Photographers

Artist associated with 10998 portraits
The firm of Elliott & Fry was founded in 1863 by Joseph John Elliott (1835-1903) and Clarence Edmund Fry (1840-1897), who opened their first premises at 55 Baker Street where they stayed at until 1886. 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. The National Portrait Gallery owns all the surviving negatives.

I have a photo of my grandfather, Robert Henry Mattocks, taken by Elliott and Fry, when my grandfather was President of the Town Planning Institute, 1941

I have an Elliott & Fry carte de visite that is not in this collection. Written in pencil on the back is the name Edith Millar.

I have an original Elliott & Fly picture and it is not here.
He is perhaps Sir Charles Gavan Duffy.

On the 'various bishops and others' page above, Nos. 1411 to 15 are Christopher Wordsworth, Bishop of Lincoln from 1869 to 1885. He was the nephew of the poet William Wordsworth and he wrote the poet's first biography.
