"Photograph: George Lawrence Co. (1865-1938) - Group Of People"
Photograph: George Lawrence co. (1865-1938) - Group of people Period: early 20th century Rare photograph signed George Lawrence Co. representing a group of European immigrants. About 204 people Signed lower left. The photo is well preserved, although there are traces due to the time Dimensions: 65x39cm with frame 74x48cm George Raymond Lawrence (February 24, 1868 - December 15, 1938) was a commercial photographer from northern Illinois. After years of experience building kites and balloons for panoramic aerial photography, Lawrence switched to aeronautical design in 1910. Lawrence is the descendant of John Philip Lorenz, who emigrated from Germany in 1748. George was born in Ottawa, Illinois on February 24, 1868. He was the oldest of six children, Margaret Othelia Tritley and Michael B. Lawrence. Michael was a LaSalle County farmer and a carpenter. Within a few years, the family moved sixty miles east to a farm in Kankakee County. George went to eighth grade school in the nearby town of Manteno, Illinois. He also attended the Roman Catholic Church of St. Joseph in Manteno. Around 1890, he moved to Chicago and began working at the Abbott Buggy Co. plant in Auburn, Illinois. [1] He invented a method for fixing iron circles on wooden wheels. In 1890 Lawrence married Alice Herenden and had two children: Raymond W. Lawrence and George Lee Lawrence. In 1891, he opened the Lawrence Portrait Studio at the corner of Yale Avenue and 63rd Street, sharing the space and the costs with his photographer colleague Irwin W. Powell. In the mid-1890s, Lawrence perfected the use of "blowtorch photography", which was the norm until the invention of light bulbs years later. 2] In 1900, he built the world's largest camera to take a picture of the Alton Limited train, owned by Chicago & Alton Railway. The camera weighed 640 kg and used a 4.5 ′ × 8 ′ negative. The photograph was taken for the 1900 Universal Exposition (Paris Exposition of 1900) in Paris, France, and won the "Grand Prix mondial". He also made innovations in aerial photography, such as balloons and camera kites. photographic paper
