Karl Huber

1898 - 1985

Karl Huber was born January 25, 1898 in Munich, Germany. He arrived at New York in 1929 during the Great Depression. He traveled by rail across North America until ultimately reaching Vancouver where he was inspired by the scenery.
Huber found work as a postcard photographer from the early 1930s and into the 1940s mainly for Gowan & Sutton and, later, for Campbell Studios, both prominent Vancouver postcard producers at the time.
In the mid-1940s Huber opened a studio in the 200 block of East Broadway. He initially called it Cosmos Studios, changing it to Hollywood Photofinishing before the end of the 1940s. Here he did studio portraiture as well as custom photofinishing for clients, decades before such work was routinely done by machines.
In the mid-1950s he hired a young mother of two, Lea, to help in the store, and they were married in 1958.
Karl Huber died July 9th, 1985, having enjoyed a long life and career in photography in Vancouver.
