This Directory was taken from the First and Second Annual Editions of the Lithographers' and Photographers' Directory: A Directory for Lithographers, Photographers and for all allied Arts and Trades in the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, published in 1888 and 1889. In the original format entries were arranged by country, state and city. Ms. Gagel has included a copy of this format in this publication. To make it easier to locate the name of a photographer in either the United States or Canada, she has also compiled an alphabetical listing by the surname and first name of the photographer. This is a valuable genealogical and collector's tool!
