A signed photogravure of a group of children, by George Davison [1854-1930], 1913. Twelve children sit on steps in the sunlight, framed by a stone archway. In his later years Davison became interested in social reform, and organised holidays for poor orphans at his home in the south of France. His interest in radical politics ultimately cost him his job with Kodak Limited. George Davison was a noted pictorial photographer and a founder member of The Linked Ring in 1892. From 1897 he was assistant manager of the Eastman Photographic Materials Company, renamed in 1898, Kodak Limited. He became managing director in 1900.
