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.




Guerin, Benecke and Goebel.

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.


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.

  1. I have many ornate albums with family pictures taken by Goebel. How do I get to the auction site to possibly submit them for auction?

    1. Ebay and Etsy are the most popular, apparently. A Google search of the name should take you right to them. Look at how others are selling old photographs for examples. Always check first to see if some other descendant might treasure them.
