I never thought I'd have a question like this, but someone has forwarded me
a message (below) asking about photo studios in Hudson, WI around 1900.
Does anyone know of them? How would we go about finding out if that
studio's records are still in existence? I will be posting the photos in
the Photo Album here, as they are scanned.

My name is David Mather and I live in a small town between Des Moines
and Ames, Iowa. Some time ago I bought a box of over 125 5"X7" glass
negatives of portraits clearly from a photo studio from around 1900. The
negatives were wrapped with a grocery bag from the town of Hudson. My hope
is that you might know of such a studio in the history of the Hudson area. I
have been scanning them and am sending you one example. I would like to get
them to the descendants of the various people pictured and thought that you
might help. I saw the article on the graduates of Hudson HS on the web.
I hope that you can help me with this project. I am anxious to
Thank You, for whatever you can do,
