I have come into possession of a very old photo album which was in my
grandmother's house. Unfortunately, not more than two of the over 50
photos have any identification on them other than the name of the
photographer and the city (and some not even that) --no names, no dates.
I have been able to identify a couple of these thanks to my Mom's input,
but most of them are clearly relatives from the 1800's and early 1900's
with absolutely NO CLUE as to who they are.
The studios in which these photos were taken are as follows:
Topeka, Kansas: J. (T?) H. Leouard, Photographer
Burr Oak, Kansas: M.P. Creese, Photographer
Mankato, Kansas: Reese Crayon and Ink Portraits
Woodbine, Iowa: Mrs. D. D. Lyon
Council Bluffs, Iowa: Excelsior Studio, Barke
Mt. Pleasant, Iowa: McAdam Bros., Mammoth Photographic Studio
Fairfield, Iowa: Al Hilbert's East Side Gallery "Over Freemans &
Townleys Jewelry Store."
Galesburg, Illinois: Barker (also Barker & Bulkley, 27 Main Street and
also 2 & 4 Main Street)
Galesburg, Illinois: C. A. Winsor, Portrait Photographer, 12 & 14 Main
Galesburg, Illinois: T. Harrison, Photographer, 27 Main Street
Kewanee, Illinois: Andrew Johnson, Photographer
Ottawa, Illinois: W. E. Bowman, Photographer
Chicago, Illinois: E. L. Brand & Co., Photographers, 596 Wabash Ave.
"Established in 1857."
Terre Haute, Indiana: C. Eppert
Terre Haute, Indiana: Adams
The book itself is marked "Smith's Studio of Photography, 206 N. Clark
Street, Chicago" -- It shows an award from the Paris Exposition of 1878.
I realize I have very little hope of every discovering who the people in
the photos are (I know they are my relatives, but which ones???).
Still, I'm hoping SOMEONE out there might have some information on these
old photo studios, and might know whether by some miracle any of them
are still around.
Thanks to all,
Sheila in TN
