BANKS, William  (c.1851- after 1911) – owner, 1877-1891

Reference
‘Editorial table’ in OMLJ 4.50 (July 1893)

“It is sixteen years since the firm of W. Banks and Co. was established at Bolton. Since 1877 their business has been increasing, and in their catalogue just to hand we find illustrations of cameras of every description, including their own make, and also those for which they are agents. Lenses, shutters, lamps, and all photo. sundries are also to be found in this catalogue. The appendix, 'How to choose and use a photographic outfit,' contains much useful information.”
