CITY GALLERY

Special Collections possesses a number of cabinet cards taken by a photographer, whose business was called simply the City Gallery. The photographer/owner is not identified on the cards. One of the cards indicates that the studio was at 312 1/2 Ninth Street in Huntington. The cards appear to date from the 1890s. Some of the cardsí logos exhibit similarities to ones use by Frank O. Fowler when he managed the Matthews’ studio, but this is not sufficient evidence to identify him as the owner. Unfortunately all attempts to identify the photographer have proved futile.
