History: Carl Lomen, 1880-1965, and his father,
Gudbrand J. Lomen, 1854-1934, who were from St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
went on vacation to Nome, Alaska, USA in 1900, at the height of the
Alaska gold rush. Gudbrand did some legal work there and Carl some gold
prospecting, and eventually the two decided to make an extended stay.
After a brief period in St. Paul over the winter of 1902-1903, Carl and
Gudbrand returned to Alaska to settle. Shortly afterwards they were
joined by Carl's mother, Julie, three of his brothers, Harry, Ralph and
Alfred, and a sister, Helen. In 1908 the brothers entered into
partnership and bought a photo studio with Harry as manager. Equipment
and photos from several Alaskan photographers were purchased for the
studio, and Alfred soon became main photographer. A year later the
brothers bought a drug store with Ralph as manager. Photos from the
studio were sold as postcards, and the images, which included those of
Inuit, were in demand for many publications. Ralph also operated a
studio in Iditarod, Alaska for a few years. The Nome photo studio was
destroyed by fire in 1934. From 1913 to 1934 the Lomens also invested
in a reindeer herd and shipped meat to the USA by sea.
Custodial History: Although the studio burned in
1934, the best negatives had been in secure storage at the site and
were removed from the fire and shipped to Seattle. They were eventually
bought by a dealer, Shorey's Book Store.
