PORTRAIT OF AN ATTRACTIVE COUPLE ON THE CHEAPSIDE IN LONDON, ENGLAND

cheapside

An attractive well dressed couple pose for their portrait at the studio of Wicksteed and Palmer in London, England. The man and woman in this photograph were on the cheapside. Actually, the couple’s photographer’s studio was located on the cheapside which is the name of a street in the city of London. The name Cheapside is derived from the term “marketplace”. Charles Benjamin Wicksteed (1863-1935) and Edward John Palmer were partners in the studio which produced this image. The studio was located at the Cheapside address from 1899 through 1933. Wicksteed also worked as a wood engraver.

  1. What a handsome couple and skilled posing (successfully reversing the old rule of who is seated). That collar however looks about as comfortable as a torture boot … worse, even, than Herbert Hoover collars that made my neck hurt just to look at. Thanks for showing this treat and allowing us into your marvelous Gallery.

  2. I agree. Such a special portrait. – It reveals more than an attractive couple – . It reflects their individual personalities. – It am trying to imagine their feelings for each other. – How I wish we knew more about them. – Two beautiful people from the past. – Thank you so very much!
