I looked online for information on the Conaway & Hummel Studio. Benjamin Franklin Conaway (1848-1935) sold 1/2 interest to PJ. Hummel in 1887.  They were partners for only 2 years. Here is a link to the Online Archive of California if you are interested in reading more about the history of the Studio and its predecessors.

  1. I got into this too although I figured the people in the photos are all In the ground by now. I got lucky on one cause it had a street name on it and was recent in the mid 1990's. And returned a license to a fellow at a church he. Had no idea fell out his pocket that was fun he thought he was in trouble. I love making connections and putting personal information back where they belong.
