Alfred Richard Heinrich, ° 12.8.1867. Transcribed "Pallatzky" in official documents.

"All types of portraits, reasonable prices" (De Denderbode, 11.4.1895). Palatzky had been living in Alost for less than 6 months when he got married in Thulin on 11.3.1895. Still recorded as a photographer domiciled in Alost at the birth of a son in Thulin in February 1900. One source states he may have returned to this address after operating in Charleroi, 1901 ca. But this is doubtful as an advertisement in "De Denderbode" on 17.5.1900 announced that Louis Collin (see that name) had access to Alfred Palatzky's negatives and that people could obtain prints from him.
