Dates

  • Existence: 1834 - 1911

An 1884 account reads: "Mr. Mouzon has been long engaged in the photographic business. He for some time was in the famous Kurtz gallery in New York, and before the war was established in Charleston on King Street; during the war he settled in this county [Spartanburg] on account of having been taken with typhus fever while serving as third sergeant with the Moultrie Guards. At the cessation of hostilities he started on some thirty dollars, but soon built up a large trade and improved his gallery, which is now appointed with all the latest and most expensive apparatus and conveniences for the business, in the prosecution of which he uses entirely the instantaneous process. Mr. Mouzon is also a painter, was some time apprentice with D. L. Glenn, and executes very fine sketches in both water and oil from life or from photograph. His gallery is located on the public square, and occupies 25x80 feet flooring. He employs two hands, the senior most promising and of marked ability."
