Robert White Thrupp Photographer 1821-1907
« on: June 10, 2019, 10:19:41 AM »
Robert was a famous photographer and connected with the art firm of Windsor and Newton.


He took photographs of old Birmingham before buildings were demolished. [/size]

When he died his will was worth over £4 million in todayís currency.

I have searched in vain for an image of him - though as he was a famous photographer there must be an image of him somewhere.

Interested as he is in my husband's family tree.
