This object is part of Schaaf no. 1350

Mr. Stanton's residence, Longbridge, Warwick

Location: Warwick

Very little is known about Mr. Stanton.  He is thought to be John Stanton (1799 - 1888).  Whoever he may be, his negatives and prints are held in a number of collections but all that is known about him is from the inscription sometimes found on his work, "Mr. Stanton of Warwick".
