The Denver Travelling Photograph Gallery was the photographer.

  2. I tried to find some information on the photographer, but no luck. One wonders: did the Denver Traveling Photograph Gallery do its photography in various neighborhoods in Denver? Or travel from Denver to other locations to do its business?

    And what about time frames? Does the subject look young enough for this to be a maiden name?

    It's great to see a photograph with a name attached, but maddening that it is vague enough to be open to several possibilities.
