Beck's Studio

John W. Beck was another Greensburg photographer during the cabinet card era. John was born 30 March 1865, and came to Indiana to teach school. During his years as a teacher, he became interested in photography, and began photographing professionally in 1885.

John lived in Osgood, Knightstown, Carthage and Kokomo before he settled in Greensburg. He married Dollie Smith 25 December 1891. Beck's Studio opened in 1911, and was still operating when Harding's History of Decatur County was published in 1915.
