Owens Studio, Fitzgerald

The Owens family of Fitzgerald operated a photography studio here for as long as I can remember, though it was built a residence (in the American Foursquare style). Before locating here, they had studios on Pine Street and in the lobby of the old Lee-Grant Hotel. They were involved in the business for much of the 20th century.  In the days before phone cameras and instant photography, having portraits made by Owens Studio was a rite of passage for many.

    Do you have any old photos taken at the studio? I am interested in the props (like chairs) that they might have used to match with old photos I have from my family. Would be fun to know if they were taken there.
