W H Hodges can be documented as being a photographer between 1888 and 1900. He traveled a lot so his visit to Skowhegan, ME, to finish this cabinet card could have been at any time between those dates. He appears to have left the photography business by 1910.
The “McIntosh Studio” of Skowhegan, Me, belonged to George F McIntosh and appears to be his home studio from 1880 on. In addition to the Skowhegan location, McIntosh had studios in August, ME, Gardiner, ME, and Kennebec, ME, between 1907 and 1923. He died in 1931. He either rented out his studio to itinerant photographers or perhaps allowed them to add their own name to the cabinet cards while working for or with him.
William Burr McIntosh
(August 21, 1862 – April 28, 1942)
There is quite a lot of detail about
William Burr McIntosh at Wikipedia,
a writer, publisher, actor and photographer. In all likelihood he is not the McIntosh that employed L H Hodges, above.
