Biographical Sketch of Will S. Thompson

The Artist of Bonham, is from the “buckeye” state, originally, but latterly from Shell City, Mo. -Mr. Thompson east his lot with the people of Fannin County, in July 1885, having just married one of Illinois daughters to share his fortunes in the south-west.. While his life may be said to have just begun in Fannin County, it is not so with his profession. For fifteen years has he applied himself to his profession, keeping pace with all the improvements in the art of photography and painting, and samples of his work in Bonham will convince the most skeptical that he has been awarded for his industry and diligence. Since he opened his gallery on Post-office Row he has had a fine line of custom, and from a class of people who are judges of art, and who are ready to attest his skill as an artist.
His gallery is handsomely furnished, and he is provided with the latest improvements in photography. The lightning process for getting negatives of infants is indeed perfection.
