The Kilburn Brothers was a company based in Littleton, New Hampshire, founded by Edward and Benjamin Kilburn in 1865. Benjamin, who favored spending his days outside, was responsible for photographing the scenes of nature, animals and architecture that made the company so popular while Edward developed them into the thousands of prints that people still enjoy today. Edward left the business in 1877, and it was eventually renamed the B.W Kilburn company until 1910, a year after Benjamin’s death.
