Check out the spectacles in Photo No. 30:
Too bad there’s no identifying marks on this photo besides the photographer’s imprint. We met Byron Barker before, way back when I posted about Photo No. 3. His studio’s at a different address than for that photo though.
I previously found him at the address above in an 1886-87 Yonkers city directory. By 1892, he’s at the other studio, so this photo is pre-1892.
Back to New Milford, Conn., for our next photo:
Unfortunately, we only have the photographer’s imprint to go on for this photo as well. It’s a studio we haven’t encountered before:
Interestingly, this photographer proved harder to find. I resorted to manually searching the New Milford directories. He doesn’t appear in 1884-85 or 1888-89. I did eventually find John J. Walklet listed at 27 Bank Street in the 1891-92 New Milford directory. The studio is still in New Milford, but at a different address, in 1897.
