"A perfect portrait, framed & complete. The best in Sheffield!
6d. at Tulley's, Glass Saloon, 26 & 28 Division Street. Warranted Correct."

 

James Syrus Tully (1828-1891) was a photographer in Sheffield,
and later in London under the name "Napoleon Syrus".

James was a ventriloquist and a comedian, and in 1861 a photographer.
In April he ran a studio on Division Street 26, and by December he was a
stage manager for a play, at the same address.

In 1862 he added another "glass saloon" on Division Street, stretching
over 26-28-30, claiming he made "600-800 gems a week".
