…lists 'Channon & Co. photographers' but confusingly gives their address in 1888 as 613 or 631 George Street! Picture Australia includes this photograph taken by Channon & Co. c1888-1889. The photograph , which is from the collection of the State Library of Victoria has a similar looking photographic studio identification at the bottom of the photograph except that it says 'Channon Co./ Galleries/ 631 George St.' The back of the photograph has a curious handwritten note 'Sydney / Moved to 631 from 416 / in 1888-89 / Then at 633'. Could this be someone's previous research notes about this photographer? The Sydney Morning Herald of 9 May 1889 includes an interesting court case between James Channon, photographer, and George & Eliza Barr from whom Channon was leasing "a certain portion of premises formerly known as the Haymarket Arcade and more recently converted into a music hall". Was this photograph by 'Carrington Galleries 365 George St Haymarket' taken by the photographers Channon & Co.  and could it date from the late 1880s? I will continue next week with several other photographs taken at 'Carrington Galleries' which appear to show brothers or other close relatives of the man in the photograph above..
