Wesley Howard seems to have been a photographer in Paola, KS from about June of 1880 to 1885 when he moved his studio to Pueblo, CO. He operated in Pueblo, CO from about 1889 to about 1909. He then apparently quit the photography business and moved to Ashland, OR to become a fruit farmer.

The card on the left must have been finished between 1880 and 1885. The card below was finished during his work in Pueblo, CO, at 115 w 4th, between 1883 and 1900.
