Photographer Nellie Stockbridge

In 1898, Nellie Jane Stockbridge left her home in central Illinois to accept Thomas Barnard’s offer of employment in his Wallace, Idaho photo studio. In 1907 she purchased a quarter share of the business and eventually assumed full ownership. Over the next decades, working often to exhaustion, Nellie photographed the people and places of one of the richest mining areas of the world, the Coeur d’Alene Mining District. While portrait photography was the mainstay of her studio, Nellie skillfully photographed the area’s mining industries, both above ground and below, creating a visual record of historical significance to Idaho and beyond. Nellie Stockbridge died on May 22, 1965. - Julie

See Nellie’s photographs in the Barnard Stockbridge Photograph Collection, a collection of over 1200 historical photographs collected and/or taken by T.N. Barnard or Nellie Stockbridge. The images span the years 1894 to 1964, containing images of Northern Idaho (Wallace/Kellogg area) mines, towns, fires, scenery, and historical sites.
