Curry Studio, Wilmington Delaware


Wilmington Delaware Posted by Picasa

This is the same 19th Century Wilmington gentleman at different times in his life or possibly brothers who look remarkably alike. Is this anybody that you might recognize?

These two old carte-de-visite photographs were taken at the W.H. Curry studio at 414 Market Street in Wilmington DE sometime during the 1860's, judging from the mount and the address of the Curry studio, which started out at a different address, 309 Market Street. William H. Curry produced ambrotypes and photographs in Wilmington between 1859 until sometime in the late 1870's. Mr. Curry lived at 101 Poplar Street in the city.
