Photographer, Leatherhead

At first sight there was nothing special about this building. It could have been nice enough, but the window had ruined it.

However as we turned round the corner, the light changed slightly and a ghost sign appeared on the hanging tiles painted in white.

Late Parrett

A look on the web returned very little information about F. R. Parrett. Both Penn State University and the Bourne Hall Museum in Ewell have one picture each from his studio located in the High Street. They were taken at some point before 1900 and in the 1910s respectively. As for Warren, who seemed to have taken over from Parrett, nada.

Location: The Crescent, Leatherhead, Surrey / Picture taken on: 10/10/2009
