Fernando Dessaur, 551 Eighth Avenue (between 37th and 38th Streets), New York
While researching this photographer I came across an article about his family, and specifically his son. It’s pretty interesting, even though it has nothing to do with photo above. The article appeared in The New York Times on April 2, 1909:
ABDUCTED CHILD RESTORED
MRS. FERNANDO DESSAUR GETS DAUGHTER FATHER TOOK FIVE MONTHS AGO
Special to the New York Times.
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y., April 1.- After five months’ absence from her home in this city, from which she was abducted, Dorothy Louise’ Dessaur, daughter of Mrs. Delia May Dessaur, of this city, was returned to her mother this afternoon. The abductor of this child was its father, Fernando Dessaur, the young son of Fernando Dessaur, a former wealthy photographer of New York, now residing at 20 Lexington Avenue, Jersey City.
Whitbeck, Hudson, New York.
I believe the photographer was Volkert Whitbeck.
