Photograph, Mr. and Mrs. ClaytonAbout this object
A black and white photograph of Mr. and Mrs. Clayton in a garden with a dog.
We cannot positively identify this couple. It may be Mr. Henry Richard Clayton and Mrs Louisa Clayton(nee) Cottingham. Henry Clayton advertised in the Western Star at the turn of the 20th century as a Government Insurance Agent in Havelock Street, Riverton. His unnamed wife also advertised as providing singing and voice production lessons. Mr. H.R. Clayton served as the choir master at Saint Mary's Anglican Church in Riverton. The couple were both well regarded singers and moved to Wellington in 1904.
