A@G Taylor Photograhers

I was wondering if anyone could help please, I have a photograph of two children, their picture I think was taken at a studio in Bradford, what I would like to find out please is, does anyone know anything about A@ G Taylor, Queen Annes Building New Briggate Leeds, 84, Manninham Lane Bradford, this is the leading address information on the back of the photo, it's got to have been a reputable firm because it was photographers to Her Majesty The Queen by Special Royal Warrant.
It also says that they have branches widley spread ie. London, Dublin, Sunderland and many more spread over the UK, it also says Ney York, Philadelphia, I recieved this picture from my new found family in Pennsylvania. If I could find anything out about the photographer it could lead me to find out who the children may be.
Best regards

Hello Tox

Think that trying to find out through the photographer may be a difficult one.

It might be easier trying to find the children through doing routine tracing together with looking at the 'fashion' of the age, this might help pinning the time frame.Has your family got connections to England ? As Maddie has pointed out if this is Bradford the address would be Manningham Lane and not Leeds.-jl

Thank you all for your time, there is certainly plenty to check, I have got to find out how the picture got to Pennsyvania (could have been posted)??? when it was taken in Bradford, thanks for putting me right about Manningham Lane Bradford at least I can rule out Leeds, yes his family originates from Bradford they went over in 1906 I can find the family in Pennslvania but the children look the wrong age on the picture for it to be them.

Thank you all again.
