J. Wiss Cutler, 26 Bank Street: With Family, circa 1870-1871

An albumen print of Jacob Wiss in front of his shop. He moved to 26-28 Bank St. in 1869, at which time the building was new. He owned the entire building. He lived upstairs, on one side or the other. Starting in 1872 Jacob used 28 Bank St (on the right) as the home address. Behind the building there were factory buildings accessed from Library Court, the alley to the right of the building.
