Baltimore Studio Photographers of the 19th Century

These advertisements reflect the heyday of studio card photography in Baltimore. In this ad are a few of the best-known of the city’s late 19th century card photographers: John Weston Perkins, Barnett M. Clinedinst, who also had a studio in Washington, DC, William Getz, Bachrach & Bro., headed by David and Moses Bachrach, Richard Walzl, and William Ashman. The ads here appeared  in the Baltimore Sun just before the 1892 Thanksgiving holiday.
