Watts and Skeen was a commercial photographic company active in Burma (now Myanmar) from the 1880s to the 1900s. The firm was managed by F.A.E. Skeen. Skeen had gone to Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) to join his brother in the firm 'Skeen and Co.' in 1878. In 1888 Skeen went into partnership with H.W. Watts and opened a branch in Rangoon. The firm continued in business in Burma until circa 1908. However, Skeen himself returned to Ceylon in 1903 to run the firm there on the death of his brother. H.W. Watts continued to be listed in the almanacs as manager of the wine merchants 'Arthur Barnes' until circa 1924.
