Cartes-de-Visite of paintings of the Transvaal
Scope and Contents
Two photographs by James Edward Bruton. Bruton (also known as Brunton) was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. His parents had settled in South Africa in 1820. He first opened a photographic studio in 1858, opposite the Lyceum in Port Elizabeth. In 1859 he moved to Jetty Street, Port Elizabeth, working as a photographer and tobacconist. Bruton married Mary Ann Woodman and eventually had five children. In 1874 he moved to Cape Town. Between 1876 and 1897 he appears to have been located at 74 Adderley Street, Cape Town, and moved to Douglas, Isle of Man, in the 1890s.
