Edward Hovell thurlow, Royal Artillery
1862, 7 March
Carte de visite
In the daybooks, this sitter is identified as 'Edward Howell Thurton.' The same sitter appears in civilian clothes in an earlier portrait, only this time his name is given as 'Thurlon Esq.' The inscription in the album in which this portrait was found identified him as 'Edward Thurlow.' Those responsible for compiling the daybooks made several similar mistakes. Although the misspelling of a surname is the most common error, one volume shows the same portrait pasted in several days apart, but under two different names.
