Richard Hale, photographer

In our recent post, Peter and Bessie Francis retire, we learned of the end of their working life in the Market Lavington photographers’ shop in 1987. However the photography business continued, under the same name, but the ownership transferred to Richard Hale. Once again, we are grateful to those who put together scrapbooks of news cuttings at the time.

This cutting was from the Devizes News. The scrap book compiler failed to record the origin of the one below – maybe the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald.

Sadly, after many years of having a photography shop along the village street, starting with Alf Burgess – Photographer in 1886, this business is one of many which have closed.


Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
