|Photography was often a family occupation in the 19th century.|
Alfred Sache, probably a son or nephew, ran a studio in Lahore in the 1880's. Brother-in-law William D. Holmes joined John Sache in Lucknow in 1877. In 1889 W.D. Holmes founded Holmes Studio in Peshawar, the premiere British photographers in the Northwest Frontier Province for half a century. The studio was taken over by Randolph B. Holmes, who also opened a branch in the cantonment of Nowshera in 1910. Both Holmes were important military and civilian photographers, who recorded the history of the Frontier with deep affection and skill.
