Two More Photos from Morrison Photography, Chattanooga, Ohio

At one time, likely in the late 1800s or just after the turn of the century, Chattanooga, Ohio, had a photographer–Morrison Photography. I know this because I have a couple of these photos, with Morrison, Chattanooga, O, incised in the frame mat.

That is all I know about this photographer. He is somewhat of a mystery.
