Local History 

We need your help!  A woman from out-of-state found this photo in a frame behind another photo.  The only identifying mark that relates this photo to Louisville is a Youtz Photography Studio logo. She contacted our local history department to see if we could shed any light on who these folks are. Please share this photo so we can solve the mystery! Please contact Rachel Sweany (rsweany@louisvillelibrary.org) with any information.  Thank you!

Mystery Youtz Photo
