Charles Cheetham Vevers 1868 – 1946 Biography

Charles Cheetham Vevers 1868 – 1946

This biography is in a different format to all of our other biographies here at Photographers of Great Britain & Ireland 1840 – 1940 as it concentrates on the correspondence of a Victorian photographic equipment maker, retailer, photographer and technical author rather than on his full life story. The main emphasis is on a fantastic archive of letters, quotes and invoices dating from the 1890s.

The first part of this bio is an article published in April 2013 in Photographica World, the superb magazine of the Photographic Collectors Club of Great Britain and available as a free download.
