I know of three photographs of Chard in civilian dress (one is in Isandula's collection and another in JY's I think). Does anyone know the dates of the photos please?

Steve,

This carte-de-visite predates 1879, photographed in the studio of John Hawke, 8, George Street, Plymouth.  It was used by many of the illustrated newspapers as an engraving to show Chard’s image.

Earlier photographs of Chard show him sporting an Imperial beard and moustache, placing it in the early 1870’s.

Thanks Les, I wasn't thinking of that one so that makes four.
Thanks JY, that's very useful. Any thoughts about this one?

Steve,

It might be hard to believe but that is not an actual photograph. That is a charcoal and pencil drawing of him held at the R. E. Museum.

Look carefully at the texture of the jacket and the button. I thought you had an eye trained for such things?

Only with my glasses on! It's very good, any idea of date?

PS And was it reproduced elsewhere at the time?

Steve,

I’ll try and find the museum’s exhibits list I have, hopefully that might have further information on it.

I have been checking their online collection, but to no avail.

I’m sure I have a photograph of the drawing on file somewhere.

Chard "sans" the handkerchief of the earlier post.

Well isn't that odd! I would never have noticed the missing handkerchief. So far as I can see the photos are otherwise identical. The fact that it is annotated as "Major Chard" puts the annotation at least after RD - the CDV could of course be earlier. I note that the copy in the royal collection is also sans handkerchief.
