Photographic supplies. "Van Bosch papers. Studios using odourless and smoke-free magnesium for photographers" [Monod, 1901]. Pierre Emmanuel Beauviez (° Grand-Brassac [Dordogne, F], 30.3.1872) arrived at this address from Paris [F] on 6.3.1901. He had previously run a portrait studio in Paris, Rue Duphot, 16 under the trade name of Sartony, a plagiaristic echo of "Sarony". That business became insolvent but was continued by Mlle Jeanne Nelly Beauviez, presumably his sister, until sold on in December 1899. Beauviez also traded in Brussels under the pseudonym of P. Sartony. According to the 1901-1902 directories, his presence coincided with S. Rody at this address, probably another pseudonym. Beauviez moved to Rue Finistère, 16 on 16.4.1902 and left Brussels without informing the communal authorities at an undetermined date; he was still listed at Rue Saint-Jean in the 1903 directory. Beauviez's departure almost certainly predated 20.5.1903 when a case was heard before the Paris commercial court relating to his successors' bankruptcy of the Rue Duphot studio, declared on 4.7.1902, and in which Beauviez unsuccesfully claimed a residual financial interest.
