Across America, women operated photo studios by themselves and
in partnership with their husbands or other women.
The Misses Kirkwood & Huntley had a studio in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania.
|Mr. & Mrs. G. E. Gould of Holly, Michigan were not only photographers, but also portrait painters and taxidermists.|
|Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Cady operated a photo studio in Waitsfield, Vermont. Traces of tax revenue stamps on the backs of both CDVs date the photos to the civil war period, from 1864-1866. These doll-like children may have been sisters.|
|The studio of Mr. and Mrs. Graves was "over city bank" in Lockport, New York. Again, the tax revenue stamp dates the photo to between 1864-1866.|
