You are in [People] [Photographers] [Alfred Lane]

Alfred Lane is recorded in the census of 1871 as "hairdresser and photographer". He was aged 34 years, and living at 4 Bridge Street.

There is a description of a horse, frightened by some noise, bolted. The shaft of the attached cart smashed through the window of Mr Lane's hairdresser's shop (4 Bridge Street), and destroyed the stock.

Nothing further is yet known of this very early Hungerford photographer, but the business was taken over by William Softley Parry in 1877.
