Henry Hering was my Great Great Grandfather.
I am delighted at last to see his photographs on the Internet. I hope someone will publish a photograph of him.
I have one photo of his son Ernest and a few of my grandfather. Henry’s Father Charles was a renowned bookbinder who emigrated from Göttingen. A large collection of his bindings are owned by Earl Spencer.

Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
