Forgotten Virtual Series: Huron County Photographers

Before the advent of affordable home photography, studio photographers were a fixture in towns and villages across Huron County. Go behind the camera for the stories of local commercial photographers and insights into the artists and studios whose names you may recognize from your family photos.

The Huron County Museum is pleased to welcome Larry Mohring as part of our virtual speaker series and temporary exhibit Forgotten: People and Portraits of the County. Larry is a longtime member of the Huron County Historical Society and was the lead researcher for the 2020 Historical Notes, which looked at the numerous County photographers resident in Goderich, Seaforth, Brussels and Blyth pre-1914. Larry is again the lead researcher for a follow up section in the 2022 Notes, and will share his ongoing research and findings regarding the photographers from other Huron County communities before 1914. He will also speak to how the digitized Huron County newspapers were an invaluable resource for his research.
