Records show E D Carr was in the photography business only a relatively short time, from about 1901 to 1909 or 1910.

There is a period 1910 to 1914 when Carr is not in the Iowa City, IA, city directory. It is suspected that this is when he was working in Riverside, IA. But there is no city directory available for Riverside, IA, so it cannot be confirmed.

By 1915 he is back in Iowa City, IA, but now he is an auto mechanic and his residence has changed to 12 w Market. He never returns to photography.
