The name Ehrlich occurs quite often in records from New York and the east coast of the US in the late 1800’s.

Support has been found in newspaper and magazine articles and ads to confirm that “Prof.” Ehrlich had a photograph studio at 160 E. 66th street in New York City, from 1892 to 1902. Only one article was found in the New York World, 01 March 1894 which shows him as Prof. D. Ehrlich at that address.

In the 1902 New York City, NY, city directory, there appears in the business section, a David Ehrlich, photographer, at 157 E. 75th and in the residential section Davie Ehrlich is an “artist” at 160 E 66th street.
