It appears that the photographic career of F E Baynes was rather short. The marriage application of 1899 lists him as a photographer and the 1900 US census also lists him as photographer but by 1906 he has moved to Snohomish, WA, and began life as a bookkeeper.

Any cabinet cards found imprinted F E Baynes must have been finished around 1900, possibly as late as 1907 or as early as 1893.

George Charles Bauman




George Charles Bauman
(1859-1936)

Timeline sources: US census, city directories, state records; birthdates of children added to show location

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.

1859 Apr 25

Aurora, IL, G C Bauman is born to John George Bauman and Anna Maria Steck
1866
at age 6 the Bauman family has moved to Iowa
1882
Galesburg, Knox, IL, G C Bauman marries Lavinia Mihlberger
1884 Aug 13
Galesburg, IL, daughter Litta M. Bauman is born
1885 Jul
Illinois, daughter Lulu Bauman is born
1894
Burlington, IA, city directory NOT listed
1896
Burlington, IA, city directory as photographer at 211 ½ Jefferson; res 250 s 9th
1898 - 1900
Burlington, IA, city directory, as photographer at 211 ½ Jefferson; res 106 s 6th

1902 - 1912

1915
Iowa state census, as photographer; res 812 Court
1916

1920 - 1928
Burlington, IA, US census, city directory as photographer at 318 ½ Jefferson; res 812 Court
1930
Burlington, IA, US census as photographer; res 812 Court
1936 Dec 27
Burlington, IA, state records, G C Bauman dies of pancreas cancer at age 77


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.

A L Russell


Photographer: A L Russell
instructor in Photography
Normal College Studio
Chillicothe, MO

Research for A. L. Russell has developed nothing. There was one photographer in New York in 1901 by that name but no connection to Chillicothe, MO, could be made.


26 Oct 2018 Update
Finally a positive connection has been made to A L Russell. At the right is a copy of page 312 from "Past and Present of Livingston County", published 1913. For 1890, it lists an A L Russell as one of the original staff, instructor of Band Music and Photography in Chillicothe Normal School in Chillicothe, MO.

Holland



Charles E Holland (1869-1949)
Henry Fisk Holland (1862 -)
Sadie M Holland (1881- )
Thomas Holland (1848-1908)
William A Holland Sr (1814-1901)
William A Holland Jr (1845 - 1930)

Brothers Charles, Henry, Thomas and William were all photographers in and around Boston between about 1892 and 1901.

Charles E Holland began in photography with his father William A Sr 1892 through 1895. It appears that he became a leader in a religious cult for most of the rest of his life.

In 1886 Henry F entered into partnership with George P Roberts forming Holland and Roberts photography at 10 Temple Place, in Boston. The partnership does not last long. By 1889, Holland is running the studio alone, assisted by his brother Thomas. In March of 1890, Henry files for bankruptcy and the studio at 10 Temple Place is closed. Henry goes into the electric business and does not return to photography. Any cabinet cards imprinted “Holland and Roberts” would be from about 1886 and 1887. If they are imprinted just “Holland” then they would be from about 1888 to 1990.

Thomas Holland continues on in photography with his father, William A Sr, in a studio at 611 Washington until about 1896. He then moves to Wakefield, MA, but continues to work at 611 Washington in Boston that year. By 1898 the studio at 611 Washington in Boston has closed and he has a studio in Wakefield, MA, on Main at the corner of Crystal and Montrose. His home address is 257 Albion.

Sadie (in some records, Sarah) M Holland, daughter of Thomas, was also listed as photographer in records from 1900. By 1910 she is working in a cotton mill.

William A Holland Sr, after working with son Thomas at 611 Washington, works for other studios until 1900. The 1900 US census shows he is working as a frame maker. He dies in 1901

William A Holland Jr apparently never married and followed several professions in his lifetime, from bell boy to frame maker. No records exactly place him as photographer but it is not hard to imagine working in one of the studios with his brothers and father at least for a short time. He often lived at the same address as his father in later years.

There is a nice biography on Henry F Holland at
