Shenandoah Portraits

Here you will find professionally taken portaits from Shenandoah. Popular photography studios included Billinger, Shenandoah Studios, S. Klugherz & Keagey, among others. Some of the people captured in these portraits are still known to us, others are not. These pictures were usually taken at a signifigant time in the subject's (family's) life, and looking at these moments frozen in time we can still share in the emotion and feel closer to the past.
