Pet Portraits Exhibition at Hardmans House

‘Pet Portraits: Cats, dogs, hamsters and birds’

This exhibition highlights society photographer Edward Chambré  Hardman’s portraits of much-loved family pets in 1950s Liverpool. Perhaps none of the pets were photographed quite so lovingly as Edward and Margaret Hardman’s own dog, Bick, who was such an integral part of studio life that he entertained clients, helped nervous children relax, and even had a bed in the dark room.

The exhibition runs in National Trust opening season until end of October 2020.
