Julius Gross arrived in the US probably in his early teens. No records have been found to support this. He began his career as a portrait painter and added the new profession of photographer about 1865. After having studios in St Louis at 333 s Fifth and 1264 s Fifth, he joined Gustav Cramer in a studio at 1001 s Fifth. He stayed there as artist, photographer, and finally proprietor until his retirement in 1902.
Gustave Cramer left the partnership in about 1889 to pursue the photographic dry plate business.

From about 1889 on Julius Gross operated and sometimes resided, at 1001 South Fifth/Broadway. Fifth Street was renamed Broadway sometime around 1885. The print of the drawing at the top of this page was likely done after 1889.

Photograph studios often had displays of mounted photographs of buildings, events, scenery and famous people for sale. These “Views” as the called them, were also sold in novelty stores and at fairs and festivals. Remember, a photograph was a wonder and a curiosity in the late 1800’s regardless of the subject. It was also quite legal to sell photographs of celebrities and important figures.

The pencil drawing of Lincoln was probably done by Gross himself as his main occupation was portrait artist. It could have been printed and reprinted any time after the street name was changed from Fifth to Broadway in 1885. Further it is quite likely the card was finished after Cramer left the partnership in 1888 when Gross was operating more or less on his own.

Abraham Lincoln died in 1865.

Phillip Edward Chillman



photographer: P L Chillman
914 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA


reverse of card at left

There were at least three photographers named Chillman in Philadelphia, PA. They were all related. Phillip Edward Chillman began in photography in 1863 about the same time as his brother, Henry R Chillman.

P E Chillman opened his first studio in 1874 at 18 s 8th Street. In about 1880, he moved his operation to 914 Arch. Around 1899, Phillip Edward Chillman began to concentrate his work on water color landscapes. His son James H Chillman carried on the studio at 914 Arch, under the name P E Chillman and Company until 1906.

Central Gallery of Mississippi



Photographer: Central Gallery
405 23rd Ave, Meridian, MS

There are only nine city directories available for Meridian, Mississippi. In 1899, 1904, 1908, 1910, 1911, 1913, 1915, 1918 and 1921 there was NO photograph Gallery listed for 405 23rd av. For all of those years there was a photographer listed in the 400 or 500 block of 23rd. Sometimes there was more than one. Several years there was a photographer at 403 ½ 23 but it was not listed as “Central Gallery.”

The only record found for Brookshire and Matthews together was in the 1899 Meridian, MS, city directory.

Matthews is listed only in that year at a rural address. He is listed in the city directory probably only because of his business association in the city. Brookshire continued on as photographer in Meridian, MS, but Matthews disappears.

And the listing still does not match the address on the cabinet card example here. Is the 405 address on the cabinet card a miss-print? Perhaps so. No other card found from this partnership bears that address.

It’s a good bet that the cabinet card featured here was done in 1899 or very near that year.

There were several examples found showing Brookshire and Matthews in the imprint. Note that NONE of them are exactly like the card at the top of the page. ALL of them list 403 23rd as the studio address not 405 Twenty-third. Some cards call the business “Central Gallery” while others call it “Central Art Gallery”.

So Brookshire and Matthews were together long enough to change their imprint at least four times.

John C Cahoon


Photographer: Cahoon and Williams
Jackson, Ohio

reverse of card at left

This cabinet card must have been finished around 1882, that short period when Cahoon apparently had a partner named Williams.

J C Cahoon
(1832 - 1814)

John C Cahoon can be documented as a photographer from about 1863 to 1900 and with his own studio between 1867 and May of 1888. From the content of his advertising, he seemed to concentrate more on “Gems”, the tiny postage stamp print, and enlargements, rather than the cabinet card format.
