Title: Sievers Studio Collection

Description:

Isaac Sievers founded Sievers Commercial Photographers in 1917 as a general commercial studio. After World War II Isaac’s son, Alvin joined the staff and continued to operate the studio under the name Sievers Photographers until 1989. The studio was first located on Chestnut Street and later moved to Washington Avenue.

The Sievers Studio Collection includes the studio's surviving work from 1917 to 1989. Prints are available, but the majority of the collection consists of negatives. Beginning in September of 2016, processing work began on the 1930s portion of the material, and records will be published as they become available. No other portion of the collection is open for use at this time.
