B. M. Croker ~ A Photographic Portrait

I had just finished typing up 'Number Ninety' for my last post when I came across this photograph of the story's author, B. M. Croker. It was taken by F. J. Garrison, of 14 St George Gate, Doncaster. It is undated, but its creator, Francis John Garrison (b. 1861), appears to have moved to St George Gate in 1901, having previously worked at Sydney Studio in Goole. In old advertisements, F. J. Garrison described himself as a 'portrait, animal and landscape photographer', offering 'instantaneous portraits of children'. I think this portrait of Croker and her cute canine chum must have been taken between 1901 and 1910.
