Successor: Pardon René
Business name of Anna Laure Clerbois, née Hansotte (see entry for Madame Léon Clerbois) and her son. The addition of Klary to her usual surname would appear to be a commercial decision rather than a legal requirement when operating as a branch of the Klary studio in Paris, owned by Charles Louis Klary, born Graindepice (° Beaumont [Meuthe-et-Moselle, F], 6.5.1837). The suffix "& Fils" no longer appears in the directories from 1907 onwards. "Who does not recall Klary the photographer in rue de la Régence, through whose studio so many theatrical and musical artists paraded" (Le Soir, 25.12.1931). After World War I, Madame Clerbois - Klary and her husband retired to the USA while René Pardon (see that name) took over the premises and acquired the negatives of "Maison Klary"in Brussels.
