             Biographical/Historical note 
             Robert J. "Bob" Long and his wife, Ida Nelson Long, opened Lafayette Studios in 1923,
                operating it out of the New Johns Building at 108 Walnut Street (now Martin Luther
                King Boulevard) in Lexington, Kentucky. Bob and Ida Long already had a few years
                experience in still and moving image photography and Bob Long worked as a
                projectionist at the newly opened Kentucky Theatre on East Main Street. In 1925,
                they expanded their business and moved the studio space to 311 West Main Street. By
                the early 1930s, the Longs bought out their main competitor, Starman Studios. Around
                this time, Bob Long left his job at the Kentucky Theatre and focused on building
                Lafayette Studios into Lexington's most successful photographic studio. In the late
                1930s, the Longs moved again, this time to the Starman Studio space, at 301 West
                Main Street. By 1941, they moved again, settling into 141-143 North Limestone; it
                was to be the studio's home until 1984. In 1959, the Longs sold Lafayette Studios to
                Chester Wainscott and Goy Goforth and retired. After 1962, Wainscott became the sole
                owner and operator until the studio closed in 1985 at its final location of 111
                South Limestone. 
         
         
             Scope and Contents note 
             This finding aid lists the 1940s images produced by Lafayette Studios (6,152 items;
                dated 1940-1949). The Lafayette Studios photographs consists of 17,269 photographic
                negatives (52.0 cubic feet, 115 boxes) in the 8x10, 5x7, and 4x5 formats and both
                nitrate and acetate base materials are present. Scenes of commercial real estate in
                downtown Lexington predominate, but civil and social groups are represented, as well
                as photographic orders filled at the request of private individuals that cover a
                wide array of subject matter. 
         
         
             Arrangement note 
             The collection is arranged by Lafayette Studios-assigned invoice number, listed in
                the guide as the item number for each image. The numbers are in a rough
                chronological order. Multiple images in an invoice group are represented by the
                invoice number, followed by an alphabetical qualifier: a, b, c, etc. The numbers are
                not contiguous and the many gaps in the collection represent missing invoice/work
                orders. University of Kentucky Archives has no information on the content or fate of
                the missing invoice groups. Most invoice groups (represented as whole numbers)
                contain more than one image.
