UPDATE: 4/3/10 Photographer David Levenson writes, “Just to add to Sarah’s information, I remember knowing Bill Warhurst when he was a staff photographer on The Times during the eighties and earlier. He was working from at least 1950 on, and his father had been a press photographer before him ( there is an H. Warhurst photo from 1944 on Hulton ) so I am surmising that the Warhurst who started WGP was his grandfather? If you have a copy of James Jarches book “People I have shot” from 1934, he talks about Warhurst and Worlds Graphic Press (page 21).”
UPDATE: 22/2/10 Sarah McDonald (Curator at Getty Images Hulton Archive) sent this update: ” WGP set up by warthurst and family apparently still active in fleet street in 1980″.
