Photo taken by Harris & Ewing Inc. which was a photographic studio in Washington, D.C., owned and run by George W. Harris and Martha Ewing. As a rookie news photographer, Harris covered the Johnstown flood of 1889 in Pennsylvania. He worked at Hearst News Service in San Francisco from 1900 to 1903, then joined President Theodore Roosevelt's press entourage on a train trip. In the late 1930s Harris & Ewing was the largest photographic studio in the United States at its peak, it had five studios, 120 employees, and a news photo service, which, like Underwood & Underwood, employed large numbers of freelance photographers. Harris died in 1964 at age 92. Harris & Ewing closed in 1977.
