CHARLES WILLIAM CARTER
A.K.A. C. W. CARTER'S VIEW EMPORIUM

Salt Lake City, Utah

Charles William Carter was born in London, England on August 4, 1832. Early in his life in England he was a schoolmaster, and was also a sergeant in the British army. Carter came to Salt Lake City in 1859, and set up his first photograph studio. As one of Utah's most famous early photographers, Carter documented the construction of the Mormon Temple and Tabernacle. He also made fine views of Shoshone Indians, mining, the Transcontinental Railroad construction and Mormon life. He died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Smith, in Midvale, Utah on January 27, 1918.

Only a few, rare Yellowstone views are known by Carter. The are all printed with his company name, "C.W. Carterís View Emporium."
