1860's Occupational CDV Photo C. Prior, Sign Painter Hereford, England
#836 Prior Genealogy, UK:
Mr. C. Prior himself stands in front of an early framed signboard he has painted for his business which reads: "C. Prior, Carver, Gilder, Picture Framer, Manufacturer, Print Seller, Artist Colorman and c, 4 Commercial Road, Hereford." Photo type: Original Vintage Victorian CDV carte de visite Photograph. Photographer: James G. Inns, 44 Commercial Road, Hereford, Herefordshire County (photographer James Inns)
Hereford is on the River Wye, in the west of England, and close to the border of Wales, Herefordshire County. This CDV was found in England and is a wonderful early advertising piece. We rarely see advertising occupational CDV photographs, and this shows an actual Prior family member's address, trade and image. There is some scratches on the photo, one across his hat, does not affect his face, he is great to look at under magnification. This is an uncommon piece. We feel there is a good chance his name was Charles Prior. Any help or correction appreciated, email Debra here.
