Here’s some breaking news of today August 7, regarding my post of yesterday, August 6: Researching Photographers Working in — North Carolina.
This site contains directories from 1860 through 1963, covering 108 cities in 64 counties. Searching for your photographer here may lead not only to their years in business, but also to their advertisements, partnerships, names of spouse(s) and children who may have also been involved in the business, or taken over the business. A fantastic source.
As always, Happy Hunting!
