Teddington Church


A topographical carte-de-visite showing a man in a top hat seated on one of the tombs in the churchyard of the parish church of St Mary's at Teddington in southwest Middlesex.

An inked inscription verso in a period identifies the location as 'Teddington Church and Churchyard' and gives the date, 30 March 1865. A short prayer follows, concluding 'Resume thy Spirit from this world of thrall into true Liberty'.

Photographed by Robert Gillo of Bridgwater, Somerset.

Gillo appears on the 1881 census living at 94 Fryern [sic] Street in Bridgwater with his wife and three-month-old son. Aged 40, he was born at Bath. For his profession, he gave 'Wholesale photographer / employing 4 male and 4 female assistants'.
