One of the Albright brothers had previously been in the photographic business with a Mr. Haynes in Wooster, Ohio but by June of 1872 through August of 1875 the business began operating as the Albright Bros. Previously historians thought the Albright referenced was Madison L. Albright, but it is now speculated that the Albright's were the sons of Jacob Albright as the Wayne County Public Library has a photocopy of photographers backstamp showing N. & A. Albright that might refer to the brothers of Noah Albright and Andrew Albright, sons of Jacob Albright and Elizabeth (Morr) Albright. In 1830, Jacob Albright bought a lot in Wooster, the tax upon which then amounted to 80 cents. The property afterwards enhanced in value and the taxes afterwards ranged as high as $300. Shortly before Mr. Albright's death, on June 9, 1884, a disposition of the property was made. The farm of 212 acres was divided into three equal parts. His son Andrew received the south third, Noah the north third, and his daughter Elizabeth, the middle third upon which the dwelling stood. Ohio received the town property, and Mary's inheritance was paid in cash.

In August of 1875 the brothers sold their photography business to Charles Gasche.
