    • STATUS: Studio.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: This partnership was formed in Dec 1890 when William moved to Vancouver from Winnipeg and replaced H.G. Neelands in the Bailey and Neelands partnership. The company dealt not only in photographs but also in books and stationery supplies. After 1898 the firm is no longer listed as photographers in the classified business directory for Vancouver. On 4 Sep 1895 Bailey Brothers Company, Limited was registered under the 1890 Companies Act. The principals in the company were the brothers and their brother-in-law Joseph Coupland. When the company dissolved in the late 1930s, it was noted in one newspaper that it was one of the oldest companies incorporated under the 1890 Companies Act.
