Professor’s photography shows flooding

May 13, 2012
By JOAN PRITCHARD , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Back in the 1870s a professor named Thomas Dwight Briscoe taught science and astronomy at Marietta College. Briscoe was one of the early individuals in this area who took an interest in a science called photography, and his interest led him down to Front Street where he became friends with a photographer named J.D. Cadwallader. Cadwallader, who was an outstanding photographer had a photographic gallery on the second floor of a building on the northeast corner of Front and Butler streets. The building, which was constructed by George H. Eells, was owned by Eells who had a store where he sold shoes and men's furnishings on the ground floor. Cadwallader's photographic business took up the entire second floor and the third floor was occupied by American Union Lodge No. 1. F&AM.
