Kisch photographers: Benjamin in Mercury Lane

Tradeplate of B Kisch dating from the 1870s.  Note rounded corners of the carte de visite, limited information e.g. no studio location.

Advert for  Kisch's Mercury Lane Studio from the Natal Almanac 1881 giving prices for cartes-de-visites, cabinet photographs (almost taking over from cartes at this stage) and some photos on 'porcelaine' at higher prices. 'A Large Stock of Views from Natal, Zululand, Zanzibar and Natives, always on hand.'
