Jamaica Reserve Regiment photo by J B Valdes of Kingston.

Postby Tittensor ONS » Tue Jun 09, 2015 11:42 am

The Gleaner dated 8th June 1915 shows a photograph of the Jamaica Reserve Regiment. The photographer was J.B. Valdes of 88 East Street, Kingston. The scanned image on the FindMyPast web site is of very poor quality. I am keen to get a better quality image.

I contacted the Gleaner and their photo archive only goes back to 1950.

Does anyone know whether J.B.Valdes is still in business or whether the company’s historic photographs have survived?

Alternatively are there other sources of regimental photographs?

Many thanks for your help,

Paul, try the National Library of Jamaica. They have a large collection of images in their collection.

No. They have long been out of business. I also would like to find some of their old photos and same for Mr.Cleary, also a photographer of note at the time
