Anyways, the bottom is embossed with: " Campbell Art Co., Elizabeth, N.J." So, I tried to research it and all I found out thus far was this:

Alfred S. Campbell Family History
Please contact me with any informaton on Alfred S. Campbell, Campbell Art Co., Campbell Studio.

Campbell Family History

Alfred S. Campbell – Photographer, Entrepreneur, born 1840, England, came to US 1866,
died in France but home in Elizabeth NJ, 1912)
Annie Campbell – wife (born 1843?)
Father was Irish Mother English.
Immediate Family:
Emma Campbell, (b 1866 - )
Minnie (1868 – 1880 or 1881)
Florence Campbell – (1870 -
Possibly married Gustave Gennert (owned photography patents, Montauk Photographic Manufacturing Co. with Alfred Campbell)
Lottie Campbell (1875 –
Isabella (Izzy) Campbell (1877 – 1915)- NY Times obituary claims died as Isabella Smith Campbell

Arthur P. Campbell (1872 – 1955?) - Family (from NY Times Obituary Dec. 8, 1955)–
Daughter:
Mrs. James W. Hand Jr. of Greenwich Village, NY
4 sons:
Alfred S. Campbell of Alrinton, VT;
William R. Campbell & Colin Campbell - city unknown
Fourth unknown

On 1880 Census their household also listed two dressmakers:
Mattie Higgins (1854 -
Annie Kline (1835 -

According to 1880 census, only Florence, Arthur and Lottie, were at school this year. The other family members were “at home”

When Alfred S. Campbell died his obituary claims he left a wife, son and only 3 daughters. I believe, Minnie passed and I am not sure which other daughter did not survive. Isabella died two years after Alfred.

Alfred S. Campbell made his home in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Last known(of Annie, widow) at 554 Madison Ave., Elizabeth, NJ.
In 1921 listing, Campbell Art Co. Art Printers were at 1144 Elizabeth Ave., Elizabeth, NJ, and son Arthur P. Campbell owned or worked for an ad agency at 546 Madison Ave., NY """

......at this site, they were looking for info on this person (company) and I emailed them, with picture. But, no word back yet. So, I was wondering if anyone knows of this picture, it's name, of if it's of any monetary value (in case I need to have it insured).

Is this what's considered a lithograph? I just love this piece.....So, if anyone has ANY further info whatsoever I would enjoy hearing from you.

Thank You !!

    Oh, I forgot.....the actual litho is 9" x 7" and it's attached to a background (OLD) paper that measures 14" x 11". I can only assume it's very old, because the background paper is very discolored and very fragile.....edges crumble to the touch!

    On the back of the litho is written in pencil "3444".

    Thanks Again!!
