Welcome to the THOMAS Library
Myron Thomas (1851-1940) established a photographic studio in Shamoki, PA in 1878. The studio operated until around 2000. During its tenure the studio documented much history of the region, even providing services to Thomas Edison. Much of the collection from the studio is now at the Northumberland County Historical Society. The "Wizard of Menlo Park," Thomas Edison, spent time in Shamokin to illuminate the city with electric lights. While he was there, Myron Thomas created what Edison referred to as his favorite portrait. Read more about it here.
