1857 * - 1859 / Tournai, Rue Frinoise, 17
Photographer "from Paris". He had previously operated in Paris at rue de Lesdiguières, 13 (Place de la Bastille) and described himself as a "pupil of Mr Schultz of Brunswick". Advertisement on 20.9.1857. Exhibited works on Blanquard’s premises, Rue de Cologne and on Gytier’s premises, Rue de Paris. "The system followed by Mr Lejeune is entirely new and it is much superior to daguerreotype in that it prevents reflection completely" (Courrier de l'Escaut, 28.4.1858). This advertisement seems to indicate the production of ambrotypes. "We operate every day and in all weather, in a glazed pavilion, constructed for this purpose; a room is specially reserved for people wishing to change clothes (Courrier de l'Escaut, 29.1.1859). Did not operate here during the winter months of 1857-1858. The studio reopened on 15.4.1858 and then seems to have operated continuously all year round. Lejeune left Tournai for Mons at the end of October 1859.
