Studio Portrait Photos of North Carolina Ladies in the Early 20th Century

These amazing photos from the State Archives of North Carolina were attributed to the Tyree and Wharton-Tyree Studios that operated for many years in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.

North Carolina ladies in the early 20th century

Donated in the mid-1960s by J. C. Knowles, a local Raleigh area antiques dealer and estate sale manager. Mr. Knowles obtained the negatives from a Mr. Leavister. While purchasing a lamp from Leavister, who was in the business of salvaging furnishings and architectural details from demolished homes in downtown Raleigh, Knowles saw several boxes of old glass negatives and asked Leavister what he was going to do with them. He answered that he had gotten them on one of his demolition sites and said Knowles could have them if he wanted them. Knowles said he wanted them and took them with him when he bought the lamp.

After he had the negatives for a while, he decided to give them to the Museum of History. The collection was eventually transferred to the State Archives.
