A page by page search of the 1899 Washington DC city directory didn’t find photographer Hewke. But a small ad in The Washington (DC) Times shows that although he apparently missed the printing deadline for the annual city directory, he had established an address by September 1899. The cabinet card shown here must have been finished between September 1899 and 1906.


Here is an additional card by Hewke sent in by a contributor.
