Provenance

The name of Louis Keck, a merchant in Georgetown from about 1887-1904, is written on the back of many of these photographs. It is unclear if he was the owner of these photographs, was the one who labeled them (or had copies that someone reproduced these labels from), or was the photographer (though some are on mounts of George Dalgleish, who was likely the photographer of many of them).
