Albert Horatio Slade was born in England. A painter, Slade had a photography studio in Toronto, Canada in 1879 and was a resident of San Diego during 1887-91. While there, he painted scenes of San Diego Bay and the surrounding area. The few examples of his extant work are from the brush of a highly competent painter. His watercolors and oils are executed in a realistic style similar to that of the Hudson River painters. CD.
