Argent Archer(1860-1932), Photographer
Artist of 1 portrait
Born in Woolwich, Archer opened his first studio on Lime Street, London, in 1888, before moving to Bath Street, Kensington Road and then to Kensington High Street. The firm was well known for its motoring subjects. In 1907 it moved to a 'new and up-to-date studio' that specialised in 'high-class portraiture at moderate prices', as well as offering exterior and interior photography and the taking of family and wedding groups.
