John Siegmund was photographer at the same address for 11 years, 1871 to 1882. It appears he closed his studio on 12th street and worked for other photographers for about a year before dropping the business altogether. He became a fruit grower and worked in agriculture and gardening for the rest of his life.

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.
