The largest photographic archive in the country is the George Eastman House
in Rochester NY. I'm not sure whether they collect the type of information
that you're seeking.

Subject: city directories
Does anyone know of any city directories for the STamford, NY area? My
Jonathan was listed as a photographer in 1855, in HArpersfield in the 1855
NY census. If I could look at a city directory Icould find more info....I
don't suppose there was one? Does anyone know of any photographers in
Harpersfield...or can someone recommend a history of photography, or the
area, that might include info about "upstate NY" and photography in the
1850s......in my surfing I noticed there is an Amercian Photogrpahy
Museum...which has lots of photos from that period (1850s)...but no mention
of Delaware Co.
