Noel Byron Bettison (1847-1918) in Glasgow, KY, in any kind of permanent studio. It is very likely that his work in that city was during one of the many “Day Trips” photographers of the era were known to do. It is less than a hundred miles from Louisville, KY, where most records place him and his studio up until 1889 and about 30 miles from Bowling Green, KY, where he lived and worked from 1900 until his death in 1918.

Best scenario without more data, these three cabinet cards were finished between 1900 and 1918.

There are several examples of photographs by Bettison at the KenCat Online Collections

Courier Journal - 15 Nov 1867


Louisville (KY) Daily Courier - 07 Sep 1868

Courier Journal - 04 aug 1889

Courier Journal - 13 Dec 1908
