George Charles Bauman

(1859-1936)

There seems to have been more than one G C Bauman in Midwest US and at least four photographers with the name George Bauman, which confused research a bit.

It appears that George Bauman only moved his studio two times in his career. Starting with his studio in Galesburg, IL, he moved first to 211 ½ Jefferson in Burlington, IL, and then to 318 ½ Jefferson in Burlington and then he retired in about 1935.

This cabinet card at the left, was probably finished while Bauman was living in Galesburg, IL, between 1882 and 1894. There is a gap in the information found on him but it appears he did not move to Burlington, IL until 1894.
