Photographers of the 19th Century - Oak Gallery


Most often a found photograph is of unknown people by an unknown photographer. Occasionally the names of the people in a photograph are written on it later. But, very seldom do we ever learn the name of the photographer.

In the case of the Cabinet Card and the Carte de Viste (CDV) the photographer's name or studio name is often included as part of the mounting. It is sometimes at

the narrow end of the mounting board on the front and sometimes it is given in an elaborate fashion on the reverse of the card.

These pages of the LOST GALLERY will present all of the CABINET CARDS in the collection where the photographer is known.

The name of the photographer will be

repeated in the text so that it can be included in internet searches by Google and Bing and the rest.

As more information about the photographer emerges it will be added here.

This is a project in progress. If you don't find something here on a photographer you are researching, check back again.

The Oak Gallery, Memphis, TN

On this page is a collection of items found concerning "Oak Gallery" of 282 1/2 Main, Memphis, TN.

Oak Gallery at 282 1/2 Main apparently had several owners who employed several photographers. I couldn't find J. W. Taft either.

Newspaper ads were found that show Oak Gallery associated with these names: F. E. Hanburg (1866), T. E. Hambury and J. T. Harris (1866), J. T. Rowland with "Hamburg's Oak Gallery" or Hanbury's Oak Gallery" (depending on which ad you see)(1866), George W. Hanbury (1867), McGill with Ogdon and Co. (1871).

It appears that Oak Gallery was the workshop of several photographers.
In summary, here are the names associated with the Oak Gallery so far:
