Hello Mandy,

I'm not sure how much help this is, but it's a start.

The photographer was a "Frederick George Christopher" (Christopher was the surname) and he had premises at Abbey Street in Crewkerne, Somerset. The 1914 Kelly's directory of Somerset lists the photography business. The 1901 census has him aged 40, same address, profession photographer.

There are some references to the photographer on genealogy forums etc.

Crewkerne has a public library (search google for contact details). If you get in touch with them they might be able to point you towards other information sources.

Good luck
