Information from the web:
"Ira Sumner was born June 24, 1845. One of Northfield’s earliest photographers, he was best known for taking pictures of the dead robbers after the failed 1876 bank raid. In 1866 he moved to Northfield from Red Wing and worked with Z. Roberts, Northfield’s first photographer. Roberts taught Sumner about large-format cameras and lighting. Sumner acquired Roberts’ business in 1872."
