Harry Dorr Webster is probably the photographer for these cabinet cards. Little was found on him but he can be documented as living in Cripple Creek, CO, Greeley, CO, Burley, Id, and Laramie WY. In Greeley, CO, Webster was a photographer and florist.

His longest stay apparently, was at 132 North Third, in Cripple Creek, CO, from 1900 to 1905.

The cabinet card at the left was probably finished around 1889 after their move to Laramie, WY.

(greatly enhanced)

The cabinet card at the left was probably finished by H D Webster as he seems to be the only photographer named Webster in the area. H D Webster's history is a bit sketchy. Beaver City, NE, is about 350 miles from Cripple Creek, CO.
