About This Image

Mrs. Johnston's husband was a colorist and painter for the Jessie Whitehurst studios in the late 1850s. He was also a performer and singer in the 1850s. It is possible that he also practiced photography himself as an amateur and as an aid to his portrait and landscape work. The family originally lived in Cincinnati and then moved to Baltimore around 1855-56. Provenance: Paul Walthers collection.
