Does anyone have any further information as to the identification and location of T Tyson in Christchurch.

This needs more research but a possible candidate could be Thomas Clement Tyson, born c. 1886 married 1912 to Martha Lily Kate Elizabeth McFadden. He died about 1960; the Probate Records show his occupation then as a storekeeper. Further research is required to identify this photographer. In 1909 when this photograph was taken he would have been aged about 23 years.

Thank you. This is indeed my great grandfather Thomas Tyson who resided Bridge St. I am told there are other photographs in existance even one of him with his camera and tripod.

It appears he found a Maori axe head on his property which is displayed at Canterbury Museum.
