Administrative history

Charles Richard Hattersley Pickard was a prolific photographer around Leeds in the first half of the twentieth century. He had active business premises in the city from 1897 to 1940. He appears to have given up control of the firm Charles Pickard and Son around the start of WW2 when his son Alan took over.
The firms negatives were destroyed in 1964 at the time of a move to new premises. In 1986 they changed name to Larkfield Photography Ltd. and in 1994 became Leach Studio Ltd. This company was dissolved in 2000. Latterly they specialised in Industrial Photography, many prints being handed over to Leeds Industrial Museum (Armley?).
