Record Type: Person
Briquet, Abel (French photographer, active second half of 19th century in France, Mexico, and Central America)

Note: Briquet founded a photography printing establishment in Montmartre in 1854 which produced images of landscapes and animals in Courbevoie and Fontainebleau. Briquet owned a photography studio in France from the 1850s on, but was active in Mexico from 1876 to 1911. He was commissioned by a Mexican railway company to photograph the line between Veracruz and Mexico City in 1876, and then by a French steamship company to photograph the port of Veracruz in 1880. It appears that he stopped production sometime around the beginning of the Revolution in 1911.
