Rudolph H. Goebel
(20 Jan 1835 - 1923)
Goebel was active in St. Charles, MO, 1856 to around 1880, first with Daguerreotypes expanding to albumen prints as the technology became available. Throughout his career he worked increasingly with “Views” of the city and surrounding area.
The dark green card at the far left was probably done later in his career and the other two earlier.
A photograph of Goebel and Guerin (later on this same page) is at the Missouri History Museum.
At the left is a photograph of (left to right) Guerin, Benecke and Goebel. This card is the property of the Missouri Historical Society.
These three are probably not the same Goebel. Nothing found in Rudolph Goebel's history says he ever left Missouri. More research pending.
