Bishop Brothers

Bishop Bros.
Altoona, PA.
Henry Theodore Bishop (1853-1917) and three sons, James E. (1860-), Theodore (1852-) and William N.(1849-) were all photographers working mainly in Philadelphia, Altoona and Chambersburg, PA, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Studios were named Bishop, H. T. Bishop, and Bishop Bros.

The most consistent of these was Henry Theodore Bishop who remained in the photography business for many years.

It appears there were as many as five other photographers named Bishop around the turn of the 19th century. Only one, Isaac R. Bishop actually worked in the Philadelphia area. Others were in Connecticut, Wisconsin and Massachusetts.

There is some additional information at
Cabinet Card Gallery
