Philadelphia Lithographers: Schnabel & Finkeldey (Edward Schnabel (b. ca. 1819) and John F. Finkeldey)

Edward Schnabel was born around 1819 in Germany. He worked as a lithographer in Philadelphia in the 1850s. In 1853 Schnabel joined Morris H. Traubel, Theodore Leonhardt, and John F. Finkeldey in a short-lived firm they called the Lithographic Institute. Schnabel and Finkeldey were later together in the firms of Schnabel and Finkeldey, and Schnabel, Finkeldey and Demme.
