Retired army captain. Known to be a friend of Karl Klíc (1841 - 1926), inventor and photoengraver. Klic is reported to have travelled to Brussels in 1882 in an unsuccessful attempt to interest local firms in relief printing. Collardon's brief stay in Brussels may well relate to a similar initiative. "A method of reproducing photographs in copper plate, lithographic, or printing presses has been realized by Capt. Louis Collardon, of Cordoba, Buenos Ayres [Argentina]" ("Printing Plates from Photographs", Scientific American, 21.5.1887, p. 321). In the 1891 English census, recorded as a photographer aged 48 living in Herne Hill, London and in 1911 as a retired army captain aged 65 living in Hanwell, Middlesex [GB].
