Samuel H. Gottscho [1875 - 1971] acquired his first camera in 1896. From 1896 to 1920 he photographed part time specializing in houses and gardens as he particularly enjoyed nature, country scenes and landscapes. After attending several architectural photograph exhibitions, Gottscho decided to perfect and improve his own work and make the acquaintance of several architects and landscape architects in the area. After 23 years as a traveling salesman, Gottscho became a professional full time photographer at the young age of 50. [Library of Congress]
