Initial "P." in the directory in 1900. The studio opened in late February 1900. "For the past ten days or so, everyone has stopped in front of the luxurious window display in rue de la Chapelle where Mr Ketels, the well-known photographer, has just established his new studio.... Mr Ketels has installed new facilities enabling him to photograph at night as well as during the day, with the requisite sharpness and finish" (L'Echo d'Ostende, 6.3.1900). It is possible that Jules Ketels was initially assisted by his brother Charles at this address. Studio still listed under Ketels' name in the 1913-1914 directories.
