Robert Hills and John Henry Saunders (they are not in ULAN)
Hills & Saunders was one of the leading Victorian photographic firms, started as a partnership between Robert Hills & John Henry Saunders. They were social photographers with studios at different times in: London (society), Harrow & Eton & Rugby (locations of leading schools), Oxford & Cambridge (leading universities), Aldershot & Sandhurst (army). They were successful, but ultimately unsuccessful at a business level with a number of branches failing and only their two main school branches (Harrow & Eton) continuing well into the 20th Century.
