View raw data

A. E. & A. J. Alden was a partnership of brothers Augustus Ephriam and Adoniram Judson Alden. The latter had worked in the elder brother's studio in Providence for several years before becoming full partners about 1868. They opened branches in Saratoga Springs, Troy, New York City and Springfield, Massachusetts. This name seems to be dropped from usage about 1874, and Augustus moved to Boston. Adoniram continued in Providence. From the late 1870s into the early 1900s one or both of the brothers used the name Alden Photo Co.
