Philadelphia Lithographers: John Henry Camp (1822-1881)

John Henry Camp was born in Prussia. He was partners with Lewis Brechemin for about a year after first being listed in the Philadelphia Directory in 1847. Augustus Koellner was the artist for Camp's lithography and the two shared the same quarters at Second and Dock Streets for three years. Camp moved his operations to the Artisans Building in Ranstead Place, between Fourth and Fifth Streets in 1851. The building burned to the ground on April 11, 1856.
