Gwelo

It is unknown who Will Renton actually was as there seems to be no details about a photographic business in this area by the name of Renton. However, there were Renton’s in the area in the first half of the 19th Century. Robert William Renton (1896-1950) worked on the Kraal Mine, Que Que, and Robert William Renton (1863-1934) who worked on the Cactus Mine, Gwelo.
