….bring a varied mixture of the old and new.  The Camberley Carriage and Motor Car Works in the Frimley Road are struggling to keep up with maintaining the old and servicing the new (‘tyres vulcanised’).  Frederic Robinson was doing much the same, offering ‘miniatures on any basis’ as well as being a studio photographer.
