I’ve added four more studios to the New York and three to the Philadelphia Victorian photography studios maps.
- William J. Tait, corner Greenwich & Cortlandt streets
- John C. Helme – Daguerreotype studio, 111 Bowery
- Abraham Bogardus – Daguerreotype studio (early), Greenwich & Barclay
- Mathew Brady – Daguerreotype studio (early), 205-207 Broadway
- D.C.Collins & Co. City Daguerreotype Establishment, 100 Chestnut Street
- Reimer, 612 N. 2nd Street
- Van Loan & Ennis – Daguerreotype studio, 118 Chestnut Street
Just a little more fun with the photographers maps compilation.
Here’s a quick link to the maps in case:
Some more food for thought – I think I’ve mentioned this before, about the migration over time of certain studios, moving uptown in New York as their client base moved further uptown – to better illustrate this, I’ve pulled the studio addresses for three of the most prominent portrait studios of the day, and listed them in chronological order as best possible:
- 205-207 Broadway
- 359 Broadway
- 635 Broadway
- 785 Broadway
Gurney & Sons
- 349 Broadway
- 707 Broadway
- 5th Avenue & E. 16th Street
- Greenwich & Barclay Streets
- 363 Broadway
- 872 Broadway
Also notice how close they all were to each other. While I don’t have dates per-se for each of the addresses, notice that at one point, all three were in the same block of Broadway (the 300 block), and again later, all three were in a two block span of Broadway, further uptown (700-800 block). Even early on, they were clustered close to each other in Lower Manhattan – 643 Bleecker is not far from Greenwich & Barclay, and another photographer, William J. Tait, was just a block or two away at Greenwich & Cortlandt streets.
