Notes on CA PAUL, photographer & BIO: This CDV was taken by a young photographer named Cyrus Almon Paul (1852-1911). CA Paul became a well known and loved homeopathic doctor later in his life in Solon, Maine. He was also instrumental in bringing electricity to the town. He was living in Skowhegan with his aunt and uncle, James Malbon & Hulda Malbon and listed as a "photo artist" by trade, at age 28 in 1880. He documented many local Maine scenes in his Stereoview Photography. He partnered with S.S. Vose, (Sebastian Streeter Vose 1838-1911) and formed a photography studio in Skowhegan called Vose & Paul, known for their CDV Photos, Cabinet Card Photos and Stereoviews. He left Solon for Chicago, Illinois to attend Hahnemann Medical College for homeopathic medicine in the 1880's, graduating in 1889. He returned to Solon in 1890 to practice as a medical doctor and surgeon. He married Nellie Inez Morin in 1891 in Maine. They had three children during their marriage. He died in 1911 in Solon at the age of 59. He was a much loved doctor and important town member there. C.A. Paul was a member of the Keystone Lodge no. 80 in Solon, Maine. (Note: His medical correspondence and records are in the Edward C. Atwater Collection of American Popular Medicine and Health Reform.)

A wonderful Maine Mayo family set, both were found together in Concord, NH.
