  • Description

Over 100 years before the McDonald’s empire of franchises spread across the world, a New England father and son built a comparable enterprise involving photography. The 2022 New England Journal of Photographic History #180 tells the fascinating story of Simon Wing and the 90-year dynasty he and his son, Harvey, built in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. The keystone of their enterprise was a patented “multiplying” camera, allowing multiple images on a single photographic plate. Rather than sell this revolutionary camera directly, Simon designed a network of franchises, partnerships, and affiliations, involving not only cameras, but all the supplies necessary to operate a successful studio. The Journal also explores the public and private lives of these two men, including Simon’s 1892 run as America’s first Socialist Labor Party candidate for President. Four richly illustrated articles tell a truly engaging story, supplemented by 300+ pages of online information. 126 pages, 100 illustrations. © 2022
