  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Studio.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: Opened ca. 1924-1925, the initial operator was C.C. Ramsay. Likely a distinct and new operation, the other Lafayette Studio opened around 1930-1931 at a different address and was operated by M.R. McNeel. In the 1934 business directory the studio had moved to 135 West Hastings and the proprietor was listed as "M McNeill". Though listed separately in the same directory, they are likely the same individual due to the similarity of their last names and identical first initial.
