Steven Brisson, chief curator for Mackinac State Historic Parks, has hand selected over 250 of Gardiner's images for this book and introduces readers to Gardiner, a Canadian who took up photography at an early age, traceing Gardinern's migration from Toronto, to Detroit, and finally to Mackinac Island where he established a studio in 1896.The rise of the personal camera and the postcard created new sales opportunities for photographers with studios, while they continued to produce stereographic images, cabinet cards, and hand-tinted prints.
