Jacques Raphaël, ° 18.6.1803; + 11.1.1878. Optician. Initially a manufacturer and wholesaler in fashion and fancy goods established in Rue des Eperonniers, 28. Manufacturer of theatre glasses. Barboni was assisted by his wife, Marie Vanderveken (° Malines, 29.5.1797; + Brussels, 31.7.1862). Around 1851, labels “daguereotype [sic] portraits on plate and paper from 5 to 50 francs”. Barboni was present in the photographers' convoy together with L.P.T. Dubois de Nehaut (see that name) to record the Silver Jubilee celebrations of King Leopold I in July 1856. His intention was to take photographs (or supervise the taking of photographs) to be reproduced as lithographs for a de luxe commemorative album. An ensuing publication depicted "the main episodes of the celebrations ...[reproduced] after photographs specially taken by Mr Barboni" (L'Eclaireur, 15.3.1857).
Registered as a person of private means in 1866 in the population registry, but still as a photographer in the business directory. His son Adrien became a partner in the studio around 1850 and it would appear that he gave up the business on his son's death.
1863 ca Wavre
