This section will concentrate on rivalries between various photographers, something which probably
got quite sensitive when photo quality, stock quality, price cutting, decreasing market share, etc came into the equation.
One of the more unusual rivalries occurred between 2 photogs who did not reside in the same city.
In fact, they did not reside in the same province.
The interaction could, at first glance, be put down as a well intentioned joke.
Except that the reaction was very cool, and the episode continued well beyond what could be considered funny.
The specific episode in question happened in Hamilton. - See: 1871 Hamilton Rivalry
A more common rivalry involved perceived false claims, especially those claiming awards. - See: 1880 Barrie Rivalry
