History

Alfred Robie Cogswell was born 1 February 1860 at Halifax, N.S., the eldest son of Alfred C. Cogswell, D.D.S. and Sarah (Parker). He was a mechanical engineer and resided in Lidell, Napa County, Calif. in the mid-1880s before returning to Halifax where he was listed as an electrician and superintendent at Halifax Illuminating and Motor Company, ca. 1890-1895. In 1895 he opened a professional photography studio and supply store at 253 Pleasant Street, Halifax, under the name A.R. Cogswell. In 1902 he was listed with Maritime Photo Supply. By the following year, Cogwell's business was called A.R. Cogswell and Co., "The Electric Studio", and was located at 103 Granville Street. In 1919 Cogswell sold his studio to E.L. Lydiard and C.F. Ring. He and his wife, Huldah Sarah Oland (1853-ca. 1936), daughter of John James Dunn Oland and Susannah Oland of England, were married 20 September 1886 at Dartmouth, N.S. After the sale of Cogswells studio, the couple moved to Daytona Beach and died there ca. 1936.
