YOUNG COUPLE WITH GREAT AND NOT SO GREAT EYES IN BINGHAMTON, NEW YORK

GREAT EYES_0001

A young couple pose for their portrait at the Wheeler studio in Binghamton, New York. The attractive and shapely young woman in this image has beautiful saucer sized eyes. She is wearing a necklace holding a pendant or coin. The well dressed gentleman's eyes are less attractive. He seems to be looking at something out of the corner of his eyes. The photographer of this image is Sheldon S. Wheeler. The 1880 US census reveals that Wheeler (age 26) was born in 1854. He was married to Kate Wheeler (age 23). He was working as a photographer. The couple was living in Ostego, New York. The 1910 US census found Wheeler still working as a photographer and he and Kate had divorced. Wheeler is listed as a photographer in a number of Binghamton city directories from 1906 through 1915. The 1920 census indicates that Wheeler had married a woman named Belle and that she was seventeen years his junior. He had left the field of photography and was working in Real Estate. His Real Estate business was listed in several Binghamton directories from 1921 through 1929. Wheeler retired by the time the 1930 US census was taken and he died in 1936. He is buried in Binghamton.
