Description

A successful timber merchant in the Hackney area of London and photographer, Alfred Rosling is known for several bodies of photographic work. His earliest photographs were made for a stereoscope establishment, but he later became interested in taking landscape photographs and became very well connected with many British photographic circles. In addition to picturesque views of Surrey, he spent time in South Wales where Harbor, Swansea, Wales was taken. There he met John Dillwyn Llewelyn and likely the Reverend Calvert Richard Jones, Jr., as well as others in the Swansea photographic circle. His son-in-law, Frances Frith, published a number of Rosling's landscape prints.
