D. C. Redington
Daniel Roswell Cyrenus Redington (born October 3, 1840 in Covington, Kentucky, died September 1, 1900 in Birmingham) was a commercial photographer and portrait artist with studios on 2nd Avenue North.
Redington spent time as a druggist before he began making photographs. He left the firm of Redington & Weitz of San Francisco, California in 1883. In 1884 he was working in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he documented a riot at the courthouse during the trial of William Berner and Joe Palmer for the murder of William H. Kirk. He moved to Birmingham in late 1886 and opened a studio at 1915½ 2nd Avenue North in January 1887, soon adding a second location a block east at 2005 2nd Avenue. For some time he operated with a partner as Redington & Hill. He advertised not only photographic work, but also portraits rendered in pastels, watercolors or ink.
Redington died following a sudden stroke of apoplexy in 1900, though his studio continued to operate under the proprietorship of H. C. Brown, at 1914½ 2nd Avenue North. Redington is buried at the "Elks' Rest" in Oak Hill Cemetery.
