Isabella Henderson Thomson

Royal Victoria Gallery


The Royal Victoria Gallery was established by the Frith family: brothers, Henry Albert and Frederick, in partnership with their father, John. The Gallery advertised as ‘PAPRYOTOMISTS to His Late as well as to her present Most Gracious Majesty’. They toured during the 1830s and 1840s producing highly finished work. When the introduction of photography threatened their livelihood, the brothers embraced the new technology and opened a Photographics Studio.
