Opened in 1884, Carl Muschalek’s photography studio operated for over three decades in the house of the widow Schmidt on Portăi Street no. 27, today Republic no. 21.

Although the main activity of the workshop was making portraits in the studio, Muschalek also went out with his camera on the streets of the city to photograph festivities, the weekly fair, buildings that were to be demolished or an ordinary day in the life of the city, writes the Museum of Ethnography Brașov, on the institution’s Facebook page.

Carl Muschalek donated to the city archive hundreds of photographs taken by him in Brașov and its surroundings, and the archivist Friedrich Stenner grouped these photographs in several albums, which have been preserved to this day and can be consulted online on the portal of the Brașov County Archives Service National.

You can see these albums and visit the exhibition “Photographers from Brașov and their workshops”, open until December at the Coresi Shopping Complex, as well as the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Urban Civilization of Brașov at 15 Sfatului Square.
