William R. Ireland (Feb 1862 - 26 Mar 1945)

W. R. Ireland was photographer for 62 years, according to one obituary, beginning in 1883. His studio was apparently always on the west side of the square in downtown Holton, KS.

From this it is concluded that he was active between 1883 and 1945. Judging from the clothing, the photograph at the far left was made about 1885 and the photograph, near left was finished later, perhaps 1900.

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.
