Kolb Studio information
In 1905 photographers Ellsworth and Emery Kolb built a small studio on the edge of the rim, which has since been expanded and now holds a small bookstore and an art gallery. The brothers arrived at the canyon from Pennsylvania in 1902 and made a living photographing parties going down the Bright Angel Trail.
Because there was not enough water on the rim to process the film, they had to run 4.5 miles down the trail to a spring at Indian Garden, develop the film and race back up in order to have the pictures ready when the party returned.
