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.

We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
