Biographical history

George Thomas Taylor was born 6 Sep 1838 in Fredericton, son of William & Frances (Morrison) Taylor. His father built the family home on 232 Northumberland and it was to remain in the family for over a century. Under the tutelage of David Lawrence, a Fredericton portrait photographer, George began his photographic career in 1856, which included experimenting with daguerreotypes and glass negatives. Being resourceful and inventive in his work he is credited with the invention of the blueprint. This was in response to the requiremennts of the Crown Lands Department. In addition to his work in Fredericton he travelled throughout the province and some of his work is published in Canada’s first national news magazine, “Canadian Illustrated News”. He died on 5 Apr 1913.
