John H Blessing
(1850 - 1933)

These cards are imprinted with a blind stamp including the initials J H B which would indicate that they were done before about 1925 in John Henry Blessing’s studio and not by his son, Lynn J Blessing who took over the business.

The studio seems to have been on Clinton street in Salamanca, NY, most of that time.
