ADORABLE BABY WITH CURLS IN DAYTON, OHIO

Photographers William Hollinger and Joseph M. Appleton (1848-?) produced this Cabinet Card photograph of a very cute baby in Dayton, Ohio.  Both partners of the Appleton and Hollinger studio were photographers of note. Hollinger worked in Urbana in the mid 1870’s and in Dayton from 1883 until 1896. He partnered with Appleton in the 1880’s. In 1900 he was included in an article in Wilson’s Photographic magazine.  Appleton trained in Akron, Ohio in the 1860’s and later worked in Millersburg and Columbus.  In 1880 he moved to Dayton, first working with Hollinger and by 1887 he had his own studio and owned a company that manufactured photographic plates. Appleton’s work was exhibited at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893 and at the National Academy of Design in 1898. He was an officer in the Photographic Association of America and a founder of the Photographic Salon of Ohio.

  1. Would love to see more photos by Appleton. Where can I find them? Any other information is greatly appreciated. He is a direct ancestor.

    • I am pleased that you were able to find a photograph by your relative, Appleton, in the Cabinet Card Gallery. To find other photographs by Appleton, you should use google. Make sure that you use effective search word combinations. In addition, I suggest that you contact the Dayton historical society and ask them if they can be of assistance in finding other information and Appleton photographs. If you are feeling really ambitious, look for books and journals pertaining to the history of the city of Dayton. Good luck in your quest.

  2. How did you come across this photo? Are you related to JMA? I have some photos that I would like identified. One is signed Appleton and dated on the front. It could be of a notable person. Do you know of any other photographers in his family?
