The New Era Studio (also referred to as Gitchell's Studio) was a photography studio located at 403 E Main Street, Charlottesville. The exact years of its operation are not yet known; it was in operation during 1914-15, as evident from information in the Charlottesville City Directory. Note that earlier, in 1905, Seabrook Bros. (CB1143) Studio was also located at 403 E. Main Street, Charlottesville.
