Its easier if you know the man.....
Alfred Hugh Harman, was a photographer in South London who founded ILFORD ( at ILFORD, Essex...now part of the Greater London Metropolis ) in 1879 to manufacture glass plates, and whom after we named our company when we took over the business 8 years ago....if you buy ILFORD Selenium toner you even get a picture of him ( and his dog ) on the side taken in his retirement at Haslemere, Surrey, ENGLAND.
He was a founding member of the Haslemere photographic society, they very kindly invited me to the centenary celebrations and I got to see his house, and the church that he endowed and where he is buried. AHH died in 1913.
