Henry Bown 1841 – 1921, age 79.
In the 1871 census Henry described himself as a picture frame maker living at 52 Parker’s Row, Dockhead, Bermondsey. He is known to have produced photographic portraits with this address printed on his carte de visite mounts. Henry’s career as a photographer, therefore, began after 1871 but prior to 1876 when he opened a different studio at 14 Jamaica Road, Bermondsey.
1886 By 1886 Henry had opened an additional studio at 13 Rockingham Street, Newington Causeway, Southwark,
1888 By 1888 Henry had closed the Rockingham Street studio and opened one at 43 New Kent Road Southwark.
Also in 1888, a studio at 31 Spa Road, Bermondsey was purchased from Charles John Cooper but by 1890 Henry had moved down the road to No. 63 where the studio remained until about 1894.
