Administrative history

Morrish Studio in Neepawa, Manitoba was founded by photographer Albert E. Morrish (1880-1968), in the 1930s. Morrish was an experienced photographer who called several Canadian and American cities home over the course of his lifetime. It is not known who took over the studio after Morrish's death in 1968. The studio existed into the 1970s.
