Although examples of photographs from the Bishoff Brothers studio are plentiful around the net, tracing the brothers themselves has been difficult. City directory and census listings so far have turned up only Bertha, a bookkeeper; Simon, a peddler; David, a vulcanizer; Sam, a peddler; Kitty, a stenographer; and Raymond, a clerk.

In 1910 the population of the town of Minneapolis, KS, was only 1,800. One would think that if two brothers with an unusual name were in business as photographers, it would show up somewhere.
