So, if they were a traveling photographer, I would assume that their gear must have been portable or small enough to be portable. Climbing stairs, setting up in small homes and apartments, etc . . . it must have been great fun.
Thanks DannL, I suspect there may have been some of that involved later on, the photographer was Sam Weston of Aberdare, South Wales and he had a studio above a Jewellery shop in Commercial Street (which is most of the info I have on him). The images look like they may be a studio as they have rather nice painted backgrounds. I really must scan some!
