Pennsylvania Photography Studios Documented with Real-Photo Postcards

November 18th, 2008 · No Comments

The Lee Photography Studio of Danville, Pennsylvania, as Documented in a Real-Photo Postcard

Postcards from named photography studios are somewhat uncommon, and we’ve got a trio of real-photo postcards to show you which were taken in early 20th century Pennsylvania photography studios. A c. 1904 to 1920s Cyko real-photo postcard depicting four young gentlemen was taken by a photographer named Lee whose studio was in Danville, Pennsylvania. A penciled notation on the reverse indicates that H. Lee Goyne was at left rear; the name “Sobey” is also written on the reverse. Such little gems are sometimes overlooked, but do document local businesses: in this case a Montour County, PA photography studio.

The Colonial Photography Studio of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as Documented in a c. 1924 Real-Photo Postcard

An unused Azo Square c. 1924 real-photo postcard of two ladies posing in an early car prop was taken in Pittsburgh, PA by the Colonial Studio, which was at 137 Sixth St.

The Penn Park Photography Studio of York, Pennsylvania, as Documented in a Real-Photo Postcard

Two sweet young York County girls in their finest, one with a bow as big as her head, pose for the camera in this charming c. 1904-1918 unused Azo Tri 1 real-photo postcard. The toddler in the chair has an almost porcelain doll appearance. The photograph was taken at the Penn Park Studio, which was at 25-29 W. College Ave. in York, PA, “near the York High School,” as the postcard describes it. All three of these postcards document Pennsylvania photographic history, in their own charming way.
