Description

Self portrait of Jefferson Clay Ensminger, likely taken at the same time as his other portraits. Ensminger was born in 1843 in Stark County, Ohio. His father was a photographer and he likely picked up the trade from the family business based out of Ashland, Ohio. Ensminger spent much of his young adult life on the move, intermittently establishing photography studios in New York City, New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Independence, Iowa; and eventually Sanford, Florida. Ensminger and his family moved to Sanford in 1884 and shortly after became close friends with the aging General Henry Shelton Sanford Sanford, who commissioned Ensminger to perform a series of photographs. Ensminger would spend the remaining 28 years of his life in Sanford and the studio he established with his brother would be known as a Sanford institution.
