William Abernathy ( - c.1930):
Photographer


William Abernethy probably came from near Comber, County Down. He learned his trade with a Belfast photographer and set up a business in High Street, Belfast, in 1886. For many years he was successful as a por-trait photographer and opened branches in Bangor and Newry, County Down. He visited the Holy Land. With the advent of polyfoto in Belfast his business declined.
