I stated in a previous post about the Friends Album that I couldn’t find the photographer, E. A. Osborne, in various records. After searching other Danbury, Connecticut photographers, however, I have refined my search techniques and managed to locate him in Danbury city directories in 1893, 1895, 1898 on Ancestry. His name was Edward A. Osborne and his studio address was listed as 197 Main, just like in the imprints on Photos 1 & 2.
