Diviani & Monte - photographers
I have a photo taken (very roughly) around 1890 by Diviani and Monte, photographers, based at 172 High Street, Camden Town. They were known as "The Camden Town School of Photography".

red mail Charles SMITH, Master Baker 1762-1817 - burial place
I have discovered that he was buried on 14 Dec 1817 in Chertsey, SRY, 2 days after his death in at 20 King Street (now 60 Neal Street) Seven Dials, St Giles in the Fields. At that time London cemeteries were full to overflowing & putrid. The big London cemeteries did not open till 1840. So his son, Charles and daughter in law Harriott must have asked her father, Jacob WILKINS, currier of Chertsey. (At that time burials took place quickly as there was no refrigeration). Between them they arranged for the burial in Chertsey and it is recorded in the records transcribed by the West Surrey Family History Society. I hunted for years for the final resting place of Charles SMITH (Carl Philip SCHMIDT), my German born gt gt gt grandfather. I have also found his will at National Archives.
