Activity

1890 * - 1894 Ypres, Rue de l'Etoile, 9 (renamed Rue De Haerne)
Predecessor: Gérard (- Watremez) Henri Successor: Heylbroeck Hector #
Lucien Jean Charles Louis (° 14.9.1850; + 2.5.1892) and Hector, who kept the same trade name after his brother's death until 1897. Opened 1.5.1890 ("Heylbroeck"). Statement "Diploma of honour, Exposition Internationale de Photographie, Louvain 1888" (Le Progrès, 27.4.1890) is evidence that their partnership preceded the opening of the studio; in fact, the distinction was reported in the press at the time (Le Progrès, 14.10.1888). The directories only list this address until 1894, then again from 1898. Hector thus seems to have left here for the studio in Vieux Marché au Bois, before returning here. "Artistic and industrial photography. Collotype. Photography on porcelain".
1895 - 1897 Ypres, Vieux Marché au Bois, 16
Advertisements in 1890 confirm that this address was also in operation for an unspecified period prior to the studio being transferred to Gérard - Watremez' old premises at Rue de l'Etoile, 9.
