In 1880, Jesse Sumner Wooley, an energetic and entrepreneurial thirteen-year-old farm boy from Saratoga County, took a job as an errand boy for a pair of town photographers. This summer job led to a career that would define Wooley's life. From that early start, Wooley went on to become a prominent businessman and inventive photographer in Upstate New York.
