Cope of Norristown, Pennsylvania. Norristown is six miles northwest of Philadelphia. The town was named for Isaac Norris, a member of the colonial Pennsylvania legislature.

  1. I am a descendant of S. H. Cope and have many family photographs taken by him and/or his father, John L. Based on dateable photographs I have, I can date this photograph as taken between 1890 and 1894.
