As I mentioned, I visited Ron Jessup who ran Beatties Studio in Devonport. He kindly lent me photos to add to the Beatties web site. He had a few prints with him in his room at the nursing home. I have now digitised these and most are on the web site already. Check out the North West gallery.
As these images came from prints, the quality isn't as stunning as I would like. The original negatives are not available to me and the prints were all I had to go on. But some of them have come up a treat. There's even a photo of the studio in Devonport.
Ron has promised to find some more for my next visit. I am looking forward to that.

The Beatties Studio blog will provide some behind the scenes information on the studio, the collection of historic old Tasmanian photographs and the digitising process.
