Elbridge Walter Packard

Portrait of a man
Photographer: Richardson & Packard
Lewiston, ME.
(Also listed under RICHARDSON)

Elbridge Walter Packard
(21 Apr 1870 - 16 Jul 1949)

E. W. Packard was a photographer only briefly around 1893 when he was 23. He had just married Ida Richardson, and Joseph Richardson, a multifaceted businessman became his father in law. By 1896 Packard is working as a salesman and no record after that lists him as photographer.

Joseph Taylor Richardson
(21 Jan 1843 - 23 Sep 1904)

J. T Richardson was the partner of E. W. Packard in 1893 in the photography business. Richardson was also in the shoe, boot and harness business at the same time, partnered with Fordyce C. Farr and George H. Farr, apparently his in-laws.

This cabinet card was probably finished in 1893.

See the Packard - Richardson - Stanford connection.
