Davis, George C., 1882-1968


Biographical Note

The stamp on the frame, "Davis, Roanoke, VA," may indicate the photograph was taken by George C. Davis (1882-1968), a prominent Roanoke photographer. Davis owned a studio in Roanoke at least as early as 1904. Later in his life, he converted part of his home to a darkroom, allowing him to work there.
