Norman Caple, photographer

From: Camera Workers: British Columbia, Alaska & Yukon, 1858-1950
Norman Caple is supposed to have arrived in Canada in 1888 where he met R.H. Trueman through relatives or friends. The two men formed a partnership and had set up headquarters in Vancouver by 1890. After Trueman & Caple had been dissolved towards the end of 1893, both men continued in the photographic business as N. Caple & Co. and R.H. Trueman & Co. Caple seems to have given up advertising himself as a photographer by 1897.

Married in England in 1892 to Florence Kate Le Grix Akerman (1867-1950), the couple had four sons. He was an active YMCA member and frequently gave lantern slide entertainments there and elsewhere in the early 1890s. Coincidentally, both Trueman and Caple died the same year.
