    Do you have any old family photographs sitting on your mantelpiece or stored in boxes? If yes then check the signature at the bottom of the photograph as it may be ‘Bunyard Ader’.

    Anneli Lerchental, born in Augsburg, Germany  immigrated to Britain in 1936 to escape Nazi tyranny. In 1938 she married designer Claud Bunyard. She was introduced to fellow German emigre Inge Ader and together they opened the Bunyard Ader photographic studio in London’s Finchley Road.

Daughter of a Russian mother and a Ghananian father her parents split up when her mother, Nina, declined to move to Ghana with her husband.
