The Dells have a long history of tourism. Photography by HH Bennett documents the Dells in an earlier era. The photographs are beautiful and sometimes haunting. Surprisingly, this was a wonderful low tech experience.More

Thanks for the review! You can certainly take pictures in our historic studio with our backdrop and other artifacts. It's our neighbor, Old Abe's Old Time Portraits, that does the "old time" style photos in costumes with props though!
