75 Moseley Road

Can anyone tell me when H Roland White was working as a photographer at the above address please? I have a photo from his studio there I'd like to get a rough date for.

To narrow it down slightly more (I assume age of the photo has made 175 look like 75), Roland is not listed in 1890 ( and no 175 serves another purpose in that year) , and is listed as at 359 in 1895. I should point out that this was not a move, but was caused by a renumbering of the road, but presumably the photographer would have wanted an accurate address, even if it was the same building

Yes, I've found another photo which confirms the address should be 175 - on the front of the card stock the 1 is almost obscured by decoration, but it's clear on the back. So that's 2 photos I can feel confident date to between 1891 and 1894/5. Wonderful! Now to work out who the people are - one is a baby which might be easier! Thank you!!
