HE’S IN THE ARMY NOW…..THE SALVATION ARMY (PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA)

A young man, wearing a salvation army uniform, poses for his portrait at a studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The man has long hair and a great mustache. The photographer of this image was Frank A. Kroneberger (1847-?).  The  photographer’s  studio was located at 1313 and 1315 Columbia Avenue.  Kroneberger was born in Maryland and was of German heritage. He appears in the 1900 census as living in Philadelphia and working as a photographer. He was listed as being married to Henrietta Kroneberger since 1870 and as having three daughters (age 16 to age 21). Kroneberger had longevity in the field of photography. He is listed in various directories (from 1877 to 1918) as being a photographer. He appears to have started his career in Chester, Pennsylvania.

  1. It is impressive how the Salvation Army has kept its sight on its goal to provide brotherly love and help through Jesus by doing good for others. It is admirable that people even way back when dedicated their lives to others through the Salvation Army and even to this day.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful images through your blog. i look forward to seeing them everytime they show up in my email alerts.

    Can you help me with research for some of the Atlanta photographers of the 19th century that I collect and follow? Fred
