Bourne & Shepherd(founded 1863), Photographers
Artist associated with 44 portraits
A partnership between Samuel Bourne and Charles Shepherd, the firm were commercial publishers of landscape and topographical views of India. Although based in Calcutta and Simla, where they operated portrait studios, their work was widely retailed throughout the subcontinent by agents and in Britain by wholesale distributors. This partnership between the two men was the last variant of earlier partnerships between Shepherd and Robertson, and Howard, Shepherd and Bourne. The company was purchased by Colin Murray in the early 1870s. Murray added much of his own work to the existing catalogue and continued the company well into the 20th century.
