Lee of York, NE
and Stromsburg, NE

This card is imprinted
Lee at York, NE
Lee at Stromsburg, NE
The 1910 US census lists:
H Lee at Center City, NE
Alex Lee at Bryant, Fillmore, NE
Clifford W Lee at Plainview, NE
Albert Lee at Union, NE
Margaret M Lee at Omaha, NE

All of these small towns, with the exception of Plainview, NE, are within 100 miles of York, NE.
York, Stromsburg, Center City and Bryant are about 30 miles apart.

At last count there were 21 photographers named Lee in the cabinet Card era. As the field is narrowed down to the Lee that possibly finished this card, the information will be added here.

Without a first name, it is difficult to tell which Lee in this list, if any, did this card.

The next card is probably not the same as the Nebraska photographer Lee.

Oconto, WI is 700 miles from York, NE.
