Footnotes

  • Fred Judge FRPS gave up his career as an engineer in Wakefield to pursue his passion for photography. In 1902 he moved to Hastings where he established a photographic studio and became known for his postcard company, Judges Limited. It was during this time that he invented the bromoil transfer technique, some fine examples of which feature in this lot and include: a view of a Sussex windmill printed on Japanese tissue; an intimate portrait (and a rare deviation from his typical topographical photography) entitled "The Kiss", circa 1909, of Judge's wife and his daughter, Marjorie (exhibited at the A.D. Little Gallery in 1914); a number of views including Hindhead, Hastings (2), St. Leonards, The Vale of Gwynant, Loch Lomond, Fort William, Glen Nevis, complete with exhibition stickers from, amongst others, the Smithsonian (1925), the Australian Salon of Photography (1926), the Iris Kerst Salon, Antwerp (1933-34) and the Indian International Salon (1935).
