Trutpert Schneider was a German painter who learned how to make Daguerreotypes from the Frenchman Joseph Broglie, who was travelling through Ehrenstetten to Freiburg. From 1848 he established himself as a Daguerreotypist. He worked with his sons Heinrich and Wilhelm and was an early adopter of stereoscopic Daguerreotypes. Between 1858 and 1862 the family travelled within Germany and Russia photographing estates and monuments. Count Dohna ordered over 50 views of his castle and gardens at Schlobitten. They had the ability to do both interiors, exteriors and landscapes. For researchers their diary survives which lists all the Daguerreotypes they took.
[Research Question from Alan Griffiths - - 25 January 2012]
T. Schneider und Soehne
The father Trutpert Schneider (1804-1899) had two sons Heinrich and Wilhelm (1839-1921) and they worked in Germany and Russia. My question relates to when the name "W.T. Schneider" is used. Does this refer to the son Wilhelm Schneider (did he have Trutpert as a middle name?) or to a partnership between Trutpert Schneider and his son Wilhelm?
