Alphonso and Arthur Lisk-Carew founded their business in 1905 (Macmillan 1920, p.267). They advertised as 'Photographers, importers of photographic materials, stationery, toys, fancy goods, etc., 3 East Brook Lane and 30, corner of Westmoreland and Gloucester Streets [Freetown, Sierra Leone]'. The brothers made photographic trips into the interior and also to the Gambia circa 1912. They were appointed photographers for the visit of the Duke of Connaught 1910.
