C C VEVERS

Charles Cheetham Vevers 1868 – 1946

This biography is in a different format to all of our other biographies 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. For more details of the PCCGB visit http://www.pccgb.com.

The second part of this article on Charles Cheetham Vevers consists of a list of ephemera sent to him by many of the leading players in the photography manufacturing and supply trade in the 1890s. Scans of the correspondence can be made available.
