Charles H. Anderson: 1880-?

From 1899 to when he left in 1906 to blaze his own trail, C.H. Anderson worked for the Elite Studio in San Francisco:

Charles H. Anderson (1880-19??), a native of Tennessee trained at the Chambers School of Art in Nashville. Anderson painted the backgrounds used by the studio, designed costumes for sitters, and searched the cities for models. He not only handled celebrity shoots but took up Napoleon Sarony’s explorations with “living pictures” staging famous paintings with live models in the studio to create photographic simulacra. The San Francisco Sunday Call magazine regularly featured his experiments in a gravure section.   (Source: Broadway Photographs online resource)
