Abstract:
Jeremiah Merritt Greene (1829-1916) was a Cleveland, Ohio, professional photographer. He came to Cleveland in 1857 from Syracuse, New York, and learned photographic processes through his work at the studio of Cleveland photographer James F. Ryder. He opened his first studio in Cleveland in 1859, and maintained his photographic business in there until 1910. The collection consists of one photograph album, titled Photographic Sketches by J. M. Greene, and including eighteen albumen paper prints made by Cleveland, Ohio photographer Jeremiah Merritt Greene. The images include views of Western Reserve architecture, hotels, homes, a locomotive, a paddle-wheel steamship, Abraham Lincoln's catafalque on Public Square in Cleveland, Ohio, views of an unidentified river (possibly the Chagrin River falls), and the First Presbyterian Church of Cleveland, known as the Old Stone Church. Copy prints are available for preliminary research purposes.
