My database of photographers is not complete, but I have the following information about the Fraser Gallery in Lebanon:

1891: Jas. A. Schroy sold photography business to F. J. Fraser in 1891.

1895: 1895-96 Polk's Ind. State Gazetteer & Business Directory, p. 985 (Joseph Fraser, photographer)

1900: The address for Fraser & Schmock Gallery in 1900-1901 city directory was listed as 110 1/2 N. Lebanon Ave.

1905: Fraser Gallery listed in 1905 at 115 E. Main St.

1910: By the 1910 census Joseph Fraser was a blacksmith in Bargersville, Johnson Co., Ind.

If anyone else has specific information, or knows the names of the brother, please post it here. Thanks!

Thank you for the reply and information. The photograph I have seems to be older than 1890-1900, but it's possible it was a copy that was made about that time, or maybe, since you don't have information showing "Fraser Bros." there might have been an earlier business by that name. Thanks again.
