The photographic firm W. (William) and D. (Daniel) Downey was active in London, England. It was one of the leading firms of portrait photographers in the second half of the nineteenth century and was involved in the production of carte-de-visite photographs. Downey had studios in: 61 Ebury Street 1872 onwards; 51 Ebury Street 1879; 57 Ebury Street 1880-1890. The company's printing was mostly done in Newcastle.
