B W Barrett

Photographer: B. W. Barrett
Home Portrait Co.
41 N. Main St. Kokomo, Ind.
There were many newspaper articles mentioning B. W. Barrett in North Carolina, Georgia, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Louisiana. None of these could be connected to being a photographer in Indiana.

There were many small ads for Home Portrait Co. in Indiana newspapers of Indianapolis, Bookville and Fort Wayne but none seemed connected to a studio at 41 N Main, in Kokomo, IN.

Home Portrait Company of Indianapolis apparently had several people working under that name as photographers and agents.

These photographers were found:
J. W. Barrett of La Salle, IL
Charles Barrett of San Francisco, CA
George Barrett of Philadelphia, PA
Robert W. Barrett of New York, NY
James W. Barrett of Lockport, NY
Frank W. Barrett of Barre, VT
Charles W. Barrett of Springfield, MA
B. W. Barrett of London, England
Mrs B. J. Barrett of Pasadena, CA

One could speculate that B. W. Barrett of Kokomo, IN, was only in business a short time.

Not the one you were looking for?
Here's the photographer's INDEX by name. Listed here are all the Cabinet Card photographers of the 19th century found in LOST GALLERY. This is a work in progress. For a look at the original postings go to
