The desire to preserve the pictured semblance of loved ones and familiar scenes is as natural as life, and the people of Oregon City now enjoy special facilities in this line by reason of the recent location here of Miss Edith Cheney. This lady stands among the leaders in her chosen profession, and is fully equipped with a first class gallery. She is a lady with marked artistic taste and is prepared to do any and all kinds of work pertaining to the art of photography. While her work leaves nothing to be desired, it must not be supposed that her prices are high, for on the contrary they are most reasonable.” Oregon City Enterprise, 24 June 1904, pg. 6, col. 4.
