The Edy Bros. Photography Studio was very much a family run business spanning several decades between the 1860's until the early 1920s in Brantford and London, Ontario, Canada. Brothers James Newbury (1843-1890) and William Daniel (1832-1916) were the original pair who established the business. William's son Leslie Eli (1864-1919) ran the business through the 1900s until his sudden death in 1919. Franklin William ran the business shortly after and ending the business by 1922. William Wellington Bogart, the brother of William D.'s daughter, Esther, worked briefly at the London studio in 1883 before opening his own studio in Newmarket.
