Biographical / Historical
Art gallery. Est.1865 by George and Adolph Newman at 806 Market Street. Gallery was forced to move in 1893, and the brothers dissolved the partnership; George opened a gallery at 1622 Chestnut Street and Adolph opened the Adolph Newman and Son Gallery at 704 Chestnut Street with his son Walter. Adolph and Walter B. Newman were forced to move again in 1918 to 1732 Chestnut Street. In 1920 Adolph retired and left the gallery to his son and to his grandson Walter Andrew Newman. The depression necessitated the move in 1935 to a location at 1625 Walnut Street, and in the 1960s a frame and repair shop was added to the business at 2306 South Street.
