The Photographer - Caleb Lysander Howe

Carte de Visite backmark, C. L. Howe, Photographer, Brattleboro, Vt. Negatives preserved one year.

Caleb Lysander Howe, also known as C. L. Howe was born in Dummerston, Vt. 1810. He died at Brattleboro, Vt. in 1896. Typical of many nineteenth-century photographers, Howe found his trade by chance rather than design. A farmer and music teacher, he became fascinated with the medium when an itinerant photographer set up a temporary studio near the Howe family farm in 1852. Howe offered to buy him out for three hundred dollars and, thus equipped, launched a new career that was profitable enough to become a family business.
