A single cabinet card photo from this photographer has been contributed.  Although undated, it must have been taken before the subject's death in 1908.  Adamson (1997) lists the firm of Glover Brothers (1908) and J.J. Glover (1912-1913) in business at Mansfield Road, Alfreton.

Notes:  Both the 1891 and the 1901 Census show James Fearnley at Oakham, Rutland, working as a railway telegraph linesman.  It is not clear when he might have been in Alfreton, but this photo was probably taken some time in 1907 or 1908.
