was born at Glossop in late 1849, one of at least three sons of Joshua
Bunting, a shoemaker from Little Moor and Green Vale, Glossop, and his
wife Betty. J.H. Bunting operated a studio from premises at
Street, Glossop Dale at least as early as 1878 (Adamson,
Census night (3 April) 1881
shows Joseph, with wife Sarah Ann and widowed mother, at this address,
presumably in rooms above or behind the shop. Between 1887
his studio was at 103 Victoria Street, where he was shown living with
daughter Florrie (aged 7) and mother, on 5 April 1891. The
again shows him in Glossop with wife and daughter - his mother had died
in early 1898. A Souvenir & Guide for a Bazaar held
Church in 1901 (Courtesy of Graham Hadfield & the Glossop
Centre) contains an advertisement for J.H. Bunting then shown at 83
Street. He was still in business as late as 1912, when
shows his studio still at number 83.
It is interesting to note that Joseph's brother Charles (b. 1839) was listed as a photographer at 700 Napier Street in the 1881 Census for Normanby in Middlesbrough, Yorkshire. By 1891 he had moved to 72 Nelson Street in the same town, next door to the Globe Hotel, and was still practising as a photographer.

by Ian Ford: The
photograph is in a collection inherited from
my [Ian's] grandfather via my Dad. On the back is written,
(I think). Unfortunately, I don't know who wrote
it. If it
was my Dad or one of his cousins, then the woman is Lucy Ford
Slaney), who was born at Hayfield, Derbyshire on 3 Feb 1870, and died
Auckland, New Zealand on 28 Jan 1941. If it was my
Ford) or one of his siblings who wrote it then she would be one
Sarah Lomas Slaney (née Hadfield), born at Little Hayfield,
on 23 Feb 1839, and died at Hayfield Derbyshire on 25 Feb 1912; or
Elizabeth Ford (née Rogers), born at Whitehough Head,
on 28 Feb 1839, and died at Hayfield Derbyshire about 1901.
