PROCTER, Ann. A 1/4 plate daguerreotype of a lady, identified in pencil on the paper seals on the reverse "Gt Gt Aunt Blackham[?] ..... was Ann Procter married 3 times". Mounted in a half case on the reverse of which is the photographer's stamp "The London School of Photography 103 Newgate St. 174 Regent Street".
The difficulty of reading the married name of the sitter - Blackham[?] - has made the lady difficult to trace, and being married three times she would have had two other married names previous to this. The photographer is recorded at the two addresses given form 1860-1875, which probably places this daguerreotype to the early 1860s.
