RE: Photograph [Methodist Maori Mission Party, 1929]; [?]; 1929; CT82.1618f
In the description it states that the photos taken are from an ‘unknown photogrpher’. We have found 3 of these photgraphs in old boxes yesterday. One of these photographs was inscribed with ‘Denton Photo’.
This could possibly be Frank James Denton (1869-1963) who was a photographer based in Wanganui at the time (1929) although had retired from business in 1927.
The photograph with Denton on it is the only one that I can find (on-line) that has A. J. Seamer in the photograph so Denton may have signed that one for him.
Mr Denton was a trustee of the Trinity Methodist Church and appears to have taken other photos of Methodist Church Groups.
I trust that this is helpful? Any suggestions on what we should do with the photographs?
