Biographical/Historical Note

F. Kuhn's Pioneer Gallery was located at 290 White Hall St., Atlanta, Georgia. It was most certainly open during the Civil War, as other photographs have emerged of Confederate soldiers and Union officers in uniform taken by the same gallery. Similar photographs of young women have also been collected, though they are also undated. Nonteheless, the F. Kuhn Pioneer Gallery seems to be a late 19th century photography center, mainly for portraits, taken in studio, in Atlanta.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of a carte de visite of an unidentified young woman. The young woman is well dressed, and she is pictured standing in a room of Victorian furniture and drapery. The photograph is 3 1/2 x 2 1/8 inches, and is mounted on card stock with a thin border. The backmark reads: "F. Kuhn's / Pioneer Gallery / 290 White Hall St. / Atlanta / GA."
