Joseph Collier Brown




Photographer: J. Brown
136 - 138 Grand Ave.
Milwaukee
Nothing on reverse
Note that photographer David Thoms and J. Brown use the same address at 134 and 136 Grand Avenue, Milwaukee, Wi, but probably not at the same time.

And the studio is very close to Hugo Broich who was at 116-118 Spring (aka Grand) Avenue, Milwaukee, WI. All three were active between 1890-1900.
