Bernard Guttenstein



Photographer: The Guttenstein Co.
Milwaukee

Bernard Guttenstein (Apr 1869 - 1935)
Since he used both Benjamin and Bernard as his first name, the records were hard to follow.

Since this card says “Guttenstein Co.” it is a good bet that it was made during that short period that this photographer called his studio by that name: 1897. In 1896 Guttenstein apparently was working for other photographers and had no studio of his own. In 1898 he had partnered in the studio Klein and Guttenstein.
