Biographical history

Joseph Paynter ([1849]-[after 1919]) photographed events, sites, and people in the Carb, Manitoba area between approximately 1897 and 1919. He was born at Owen Sound, [Ontario] and died in an unknown place. He moved to Manitoba with a party of family and friends in 1879 when he applied for a homestead on NW1/4 31-14-26 (patented 1884). He later opened a photography studio in Carberry, and his nephew Will took over the farm. The studio was sold in circa 1918. A niece, Mary Gertrude Paynter, spent a year circa 1900 in his photography business. Further biographical information is unknown.
