St. Louis Practical Photographer History

The St. Louis Practical Photographer is an illustrated monthly journal devoted to the elevation and improvement of the photographic art. It was established Jan. 1, 1876, by J.H. Fitzgibbon, by whom it has been managed ever since. This is next to the oldest photographic journal in America, and has a high standing in the photographic world. In the fall of 1882, Mr. Fitzgibbon died, and the publication of the Photographer was suspended until Jan. 1, 1883, when it was resumed by Mrs. Fitzgibbon, beginning a new series.
