Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Sarony & Major was a New York City lithography business that was started in 1843 by Napoleon Sarony and James Major. In 1845, Henry B. Major took James Major's place, though the firm continued under the same name until 1853. It later became Sarony & Company (1853-1857) and Sarony, Major & Knapp (1857-1867). Sarony left the partnership and opened his own photography studio in 1867.
