Biographical / Historical
Robert E Holloway (1850-1904) was a photographer active in Newfoundland. According to O'Neill (1975, p. 210), Holloway was always an amateur photographer, being employed as Principal of the Methodist College in St. John's all the time he lived in Newfoundland (1872-1904). His daughter Elsie set up a photographic studio in Henry street, St. John's. Although Holloway's photographs were used on two Newfoundland stamps and a Canadian banknote, he does not appear to have managed a studio.
