Bachelder Studios, Kingsport TN

This barely legible sign is all that remains of the Bachelder Photographic Studios in Kingsport from 1916 to 1925.  It was John Bachelder and this was part of a nationwide chain, from what I can glean on the internet.  He appears to have died in 1949 and was buried in Potter’s Field in Baltimore.

You used to see these all over the place.  This one remains on the back of a building in Erwin TN.
