Photographic Businesses

Louis Langfier  AND Louis Saul Langfier

Louis Saul Langfier had photographic businesses in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.

His daughter, Iris, reports that Louis Saul Langfier was "the official court photographer in London".  Here is a document in which  Langfier claims an impressive list of patronages.  However this document may relate to Louis Langfier rather than Louis Saul Langfier.

Joan Ireland, descendant of Louis Langfier, tells me that Louis Langfier was a different photographer from Louis Saul Langfier, and that it was Louis Langfier who displayed the Royal Coat of Arms against his name.

Louis Saul Langfier and his brother, Adolph, came to Britain from Poland .  The date of their immigration is no known.  He was living in London at the time of the 1901 census with his wife, Ellen, and son, Adolph.  (All of this paragraph, or perhaps just the second sentence may actually refer to Louis Langfier, not Louis Langfier.)
