Charles Horatio Osgood

Photographer: C. H. Osgood
Victoria, Ill's

Charles Horatio Osgood
(7 Apr 1863 - 6 Jul 1951)

C. H. Osgood spent most of his life in Knox County, IL. He not only practiced studio photography but also ran a Photo Supply Shop where he made picture frames and sold radios.

He worked as a free-lance photographer from about 1880 to about 1910. He opened his Osgood Photo Supply shop in Galesburg, IL, from about 1926 to about 1949.

Victoria, IL, is just fifteen miles from Galesburg so he could have had a studio there at any time but it was probably early in his career before he established the Photo Supply store in Galesburg.

This cabinet card is on very light stock and has squared corners so it was probably finished in 1880 or before.

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 LOST GALLERY.
