Some Photos by Harris & Ewing Photo Studio
[Harris & Ewing Inc. was a photographic studio in Washington, D.C., owned and run by George W. Harris and Martha Ewing. Harris worked for the Hearst News Service in San Francisco from 1900 to 1903. As a rookie news photographer, Harris covered the Johnstown, Pa., flood of 1889. He worked at Hearst News Service in San Francisco from 1900 to 1903, then joined Roosevelt's press entourage on a train trip. According to the papers nominating the studio to the National Register of Historic Places, [the president personally urged him to start a photographic news service in Washington because it was so difficult at that time for out-of-town newspapers to get timely photographs of notable people and events in the Nation's Capital]. Harris and Ewing opened their studio in 1905]. – Wikipedia
