Recommended Posts

Jasper Redfern was a Sheffield-based optician who in 1898 was also offering photographic supplies and instruction, Röntgen rays (X-rays), and exhibitions of the Lumière Cinématographe, for which he was one of a number of agents in Britain at this time.

Redfern operated from two addresses in Sheffield: 55-57 Surrey Street for his showrooms and 104-6 Norfolk Street for his 'Works and Studios'.

Specialising in 'locals', films of interest in his area, Redfern travelled around with his local football team during 1899, photographing at least four major matches climaxing with the Football Cup Final at Crystal Palace, when Sheffield United played Derby (15 April 1899).
