Ferdinandus Joannes, ° 31.12.1877. Initial "J." in some directories. Recorded as a photographer domiciled in Antwerp on the occasion of his wedding in Antwerp on 18.12.1900.
1901 - 1920 > Anvers, Rue des Meuniers, 61
Already recorded as a photographer at this address at the birth of a son (Ludovicus) on 5.8.1901. "Speciality of photographs in relief (views and portraits)", c. 1908. Member of the "Cercle d'études photographiques et scientifiques d'Anvers" (no forename). Active at this address in the interwar period and still recorded here in the 1937 population registry. At that period, specialized in views of the port of Antwerp. The business was eventually continued by at least one of his sons, Frans Claes. It is difficult to determine when this happened because of their shared initials. Ferdinand was honorary president of the "Club de Studio-Portrettisten der Provincie Antwerpen" in December 1950.
