The Kehrwieder family of artists and photographers maintained the business in Philadelphia, PA, from about 1864 to 1912.

The small town of Shamokin, PA, is about a hundred miles north west of Philadelphia. Quite likely one of the family just set up shop for a short time there and then returned to Philadelphia, perhaps all within a year.


It could actually have been any one of the family who visited Shamokin, PA. There are years when Henrietta (Retta) and William H F did not appear in the Philadelphia city directory so it is possibly one of those. Shamokin, PA, did not have a city directory so there is little way to confirm dates.

The card is light weight stock, not embossed and has simple printing. It is probably from before 1890.
