The Davey Photo Co, Ltd., which was based in Honolulu, HI, was run by Frank Davey, who worked in Hawaii from 1897 to 1901. The firm made albumen, photogravures and platinum prints, as well as using an "Iridium process". Davey took early night photographs by flash and did commercial work for advertising illustration and other purposes. He made photographs of the burning of Chinatown in Honolulu, but was banned by the government from making photos of the quarantine of Chinatown over the bubonic plague epidemic
