Hello: I saw your message about Mary Biffar. I have tried to research the Biffar Photographer firm in the past. As I recall, they had a number of different addresses. A cousin in Ireland sent me an unidentified photo of a man, probably named Starkey, marked "Biffar" "Photographer" "307 Broadway" "Bet. Marcy Ave. and Rodney St." "Brooklyn". Have you done any research on the dates that Biffar may have operated at various locations? I am hoping that if I can narrow down the year he was at 307 Broadway, I may be able to identify the man in the photo. When your Silkworth ancestor took over, did Biffar retire? Did any other photographers named Biffar continue the business also? Any help you could supply would be most appreciated. Do you know what happened to the records of Biffar Photographer? I also have some unidentified photos by United States Portrait Company, 311 Fulton Street, Corner of Johnson, Brooklyn and another marked Kopke Photo Studio, 479 Fulton Street, Brooklyn. Thank you so much. Susan
