LABORATORIO A. DUPERLY & SONS, KINGSTONE JAMAICA

This large collection dates back to 1844 when Adolphe Duperly published his Daguerrian Excursions in Jamaica. It is a collection of views and public buildings taken by Duperly with the daguerreotype, printed in Paris.

By the end of the 19th century photography had been well established in Jamaica and the Library has a representative collection of the works of many of these photographers such as J.B Valdez, Cleary and Elliott, Duperly and Sons and J.W. Brennan.

Adolphe Duperly of Paris was originally an engraver, lithographer and printer. In 1833 he published a lithograph depicting the 1831 Christmas Rebellion and in 1838 a lithograph depicting emancipation celebrations in Kingston. He produced I.M. Belisario's 'Sketches of character in illustration...of the Negro population of Jamaica' (Kingston, issued in parts, 1837). He established his photographic firm in Jamaica in, according to advertisements, 1840 or 1842. In the mid-1840s he published a series of lithographs from his own daguerreotypes of Jamaican scenes (Robertson 1985, p.17). Adolphe Duperly died in 1865 (Macmillan 1909, p.204).

The photograph business was continued by Adolphe's eldest son (or possibly his grandson) Armand John Lewis Duperly (c. 1834-1909) (Robertson 1985, p.17; Macmillan 1909, p.204). Armand married Rebecca Ann Dimeresque of Boston who died in 1910. Two of his sons worked in the photographic business - Armand John Louis Duperly and Theophile John Baptiste Duperly. The firm received an Honourable Mention at the Paris Exhibition of 1867 and the Gold Medal at the Jamaica Exhibition of 1891 (Macmillan 1909, p.204). Armand John Louis died in 1903 in the United States, his body was returned to Jamaica for burial. He left his share of the business to his wife, but to be managed by his father and brother (Robertson 1985, p.18). In 1907 the firm's original premises was destroyed in a great fire. Theophile also lost his right hand in the disaster. However, by 1909 the business had a studio at 85 King Street, Kingston (Macmillan 1909, p.204) The business appears to have closed by 1922, it is not recorded in the 1922 edition of Macmillan's 'The red book of the West Indies' (Macmillan 1922). Theophile John Baptiste Duperly died in 1933 (Robertson 1985, p.18).

There is possibly a family connection with H.S. Duperly and his son Charles Sylvester (c. 1894-1918) who were also photographers in Jamaica.
