Bogardus & Bendann, Briefly

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


“Messrs. BENDANN Bros., of this city, have entered into copartnership with Mr. Abraham Bogardus, of New York, to commence on Jan. 1st, 1872,” read an announcement in the January 1872 issue of Richard Walzl’s journal The Photographer’s Friend.

The above sensitive portrait of a young girl was made during this brief New York partnership. Horace Greeley and Samuel F. B. Morse were among the sitters who visited their studio. The three-story brick building, at 1153 Broadway near 27th Street, still stands.

By 1874, Daniel and David Bendann were again listed in Woods’ Baltimore City Directory.
