Several photographers and photography studios of the mid-19th century achieved a certain status of their own. Among the most famous was Napoleon Sarony. Sarony established a studio on Broadway in 1866 and, for the next 30 years, photographed virtually every actor and actress working on the New York stage, as well as many famous people from literature, the arts and politics.
