    Since the Green Brothers acquired Frederick's stock, it is not surprising that the "N.B." note at the bottom almost entirely matches the wording on one of Dally's cartouches (Dally, BC Archives, Visual Records catalogue no. HP002599). Image courtesy of BC Archives, Barnard album no. 27, p. 17.

  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Studio.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: This studio was managed by George R. and Rowland E. Green. The brothers purchased Frederick Dally's business when he sold out in Sep 1870. The following month one of the brothers accompanied Governor Anthony Musgrave aboard the HMS Sparrowhawk to Knights Inlet and the Stikine River. They photographed the inside of St. John's Church, Victoria, when it was decorated for Christmas in 1870. The brothers eventually reneged on their payment and the equipment and negatives were sold in Aug 1872 and probably acquired by Richard and Hannah Maynard.
