A History of Newton Photographic, Andrews & Son, Andrews-Newton Photography and Greg Newton Photography from 1940 to present time.

1940 - Bill & Jean Newton started a photography business working from their home at 326 Wilbrod St., Ottawa. This commercial and portrait photography business grew with the acquisition of the Ottawa Citizen contract for news photography. Newton Photographic Associates Ltd. has as many as 20 staff photographers and lab technicians through the 1950's.

1958 - Andy Andrews formed his own photography business known as Andrews-Hunt Photography. They did largely commercial photography and some portrait work. The name was changed to Andrews & Son when Andy's son David joined him in the early 1960's.

1974 - Andy Andrews & Greg Newton formed a partnership to become Andrews-Newton Photographers Ltd. Andrews-Newton Photography was a full service photographic business specializing in Portrait & Commercial Photography. They worked out of studios on Sparks St. and O'Connor St. until 1994.

The City of Ottawa Archives has all of the files from Newton Photographic, Andrews-Hunt and Andrews Newton Photographers Ltd. There is a conservative estimate of 1/2 million images on file at the Archives. This is a chronicle of the Ottawa scene from the late 1940's until present day.
