PORTRAIT OF MOTHER AND YOUNG DAUGHTER AND PHOTO ALBUM IN COLUMBIANA, OHIO

columbiana

A mother and young daughter pose for their portait at the the J. M. Webb studio in Columbiana, Ohio. The daughter is cute and she has one hand affectionately placed on her mother’s shoulder and her other hand on a thick photographic album. Note the girl’s long frizzy hair. The photographer of this image is John M. Webb (1850-1942). He was born in Greenford, Ohio. He took over his father’s (George G. Webb) photography business and operated it from 1884 to at least 1900.

  1. I am an amateur historian and Columbiana, Ohio is my subject of interest. There is a group of us trying to indentify many of the Webb studio pictures. Can you recommend any resources? jAny assistance would be much appreciated.

    • I think it is likely that you may have already tried some of these sources, but if not, perusal of their data may be of some help. Try all historical societies in the area of Columbiana. Seek information from Columbiana area libraries. Check out genealogy sites such as ancestry.com. Look at all area newspapers in the archives. Try looking at the multiple internet sites that try to reunite relatives with identified subjects of vintage photos. All those tools are a good start but they will take hours and hours of research to thoroughly check records and data. Best of luck to you and your colleagues.
