Although the US census of 1900 finds Sherraden in Council Bluffs, IA, on June the fifth, the 1900 city directory for Salt Lake City, UT, also lists him at 329 D F Walker building. There is no doubt this is photographer Sherraden, as the 1906 Utah death certificate also lists the correct names of his father, mother and wife.

C. A. Riley and C. H. Sherraden worked together at least twice. The cabinet card at the left was probably done during their later 1893 - 1894 collaboration.

Sherraden apparently leaves photography AND Council Bluffs, IA, late in 1900, and never returns.

Two examples below, of cabinet cards by Sherraden are imprinted with the 317 Broadway address that Riley occupied between 1907 and 1921. No city directories or other records have been found placing Sherraden at that address so it could be assumed that he was there only a short time. It could be speculated that it was just before he left for Salt Lake City, UT, in 1900.



There are two examples at the Snoqualmie Valley Museum. Reverse sides are not shown but accompanying information says these were made at 317 Broadway, Council Bluffs, IA.

Note the example on the right shows the font and logo design, the ruled line and the rounded corners are the exactly the same as the example at the top of the page. It was probably finished about the same time.
