A name written on the album page beside this photograph, indicating the name of the photographer, appears to be ‘Firmin’. It is tentatively suggested that the name of the photographer is Edward Morris Firmin (partner, Elles & Co., Amoy/Xiamen) or perhaps H.M. Firmin (listed as a clerk at Margesson & Co., Foochow/Fuzhou in 1867). Edward Morris Firmin (1834-1898) was a tea broker, who was born and died in London.
