London 1860 and 1870

James Hedderly (1815 – 1885) was a painter and signwriter until the mid-1860s, when he became a photographer. He lived in Duke Street, only a short distance from Whistler’s house at 7 Lindsey Row, from 1841 until the 1870s, when the street was demolished for the Embankment. He then moved to 21 Riley Street, where The Chelsea, Pimlico and Belgravia Diectory for 1885 notes him as a photographer (also listed is a Mrs Hedderly, laundress at 23 Riley Street).

  1. It’s not clearif you’re suggesting that all of these pictures are by Hedderly. 9 of them are not. One of them is a John Bignell picture of a 20th century film set. That one is copyright by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Others are from Bignell’s history of Chelsea.
