Albert V. Porter was a popular portrait and landscape photographer at the village of Ellenville in Ulster County, New York. He took over the studio of W. S. Davis in the early 1900s and successfully served the Ellenville community for nearly 20 years. By late 1918 Porter faced a significant health challenge in losing his eyesight, and therefore retired from the photography business and sold his studio to Casper Cosenza.
Last week I published a biography for Albert V. Porter. In writing the biography I had acquired 25 photographs taken by Albert V. Porter. The postcards depict some of the beautiful scenes in and around the village of Ellenville. Scenes include Sam’s Point, Hanging Rock Falls, Grahamsville, Big Indian Springs, the Mohonk House, Vernooy Kill Falls and many more.
All the photographs have been added to the Albert V. Porter gallery, which can be reached by navigating: Catskills Photograph Gallery >> Historic Catskills Photographers >> Albert V. Porter – Ellenville, NY Photographer.
