|Other: Edward Streeter (uncertain) |
In 1855, at the third meeting of the newly established Brighton and Sussex Photographic Society, a Mr. E. Streeter made a presentation “On the Waxed Paper Process.” The only person with that initial traced in the Brighton area was Edward, a baker, an occupation that might at first seem unlikely to yield a candidate. However, a baker often worked at night and thus had precious daylight hours available for photography. It appears that this was a substantial bakery, employing several men, and that Streeter had retired by the end of the 1850s.
