Dates of existence
"Edward Hartley was born 1849 in Wadsworth, OH. The date he left Ohio is undetermined but, according to one obituary, had a photograph studio in Jacksonville, IL, before moving to Chicago in 1875.
It is safe to say that he was active as a photographer in Chicago from 1875 to 1887 and any cabinet cards imprinted with the 309 W Madison address would probably be from that era. However, under the management of his brother Charles Hartley, the photograph studio carried on some years after Edward's death and it would certainly be possible that some photographs from the studio continued with the same imprint."
In 1893, Charles Hartley purchased Brand Studios at 210 & 212 Wabash Street, which he renamed Hartley. He subsequently deeded his share in the business to his wife, Belle Hartley, before "eloping" to Utah in 1894. It is unknown whether the business continued after this point.
