[6-7] *"Photographed by...". Most prolific, best and longest-surviving producer of Catskills scy. "Catskill Mountain Scenery", earliest series in 60s had small paster labels on back; those with B/Ls made later, to as high as Seventh Series. Covered all common Catskills photogenic sights, plus many uncommon ones. Many B/Ls, ~300 images, but changed #s, titles & images frequently, so it's difficult to assess his complete output. Also issued "Lake Mohonk Scenery", BL, #'s to 58. "Sailors' Snug Harbor Series" is only set seen of his Staten Island residence area. Son was prob. A. Loeffler. Member of the American Stereoscopic Exchange Club, 67-69. Imprint also seen as "& Son".
