This appears to be speculation or original research. Please use a proper reliable source to reference these names before re-adding. CactusWriter (talk) 10:54, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

This is original research. Photographer names are derived from inscriptions on the photographic negatives. This research was carried out using the collection at George Eastman House. All of these inscribed negatives are available online through the link provided within this article's references section. Each name can be verified by checking against that source. When these names link to information about the photographer, this speculation is valid as these individuals were operating photographers at the time of the photo-syndicate's operation and would have been the only individuals to have had access to photograph Royalty.--Apinrise (talk) 03:40, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I thought it may be something like that -- that is why I removed it. Please read Wikipedia: NO Original Research. We cannot accept your own personal experience or research -- regardless that it is true. (Wikipedia policy requires Verifiability, not truth.) We can only accept information that is verifiable through independent published reliable sources. Now, it is permitted to use the actual photograph (or in this case, glass negative) as a primary source -- and to describe names inscribed on the edge -- as long as it can be referenced and checked by the average reader. But it is not permitted to speculate on those names as being "possibly" or "probably" someone. For each of the names, it will be necessary to cite it to a particular photograph as a reference. They can be added to a listing of something like The names of photographers annotated on negatives in the Chusseau-Flaviens photo collection include... If this cannot be done, than I am afraid that we will just have to wait until this information becomes published. CactusWriter (talk) 07:33, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
