Studio photographs became available toward the last quarter of the 1800s. A family arranged themselves on a set, in front of velvet swag, around an ornate chair and held perfectly still for minutes. Gentlemen were seated and their women stood dutifully at their shoulder. Gradually photos became more mobile and so did their subjects.

We’re happy to share our picture albums with you of real people from past and present. Photos to be used only with permission.
