Photograph and print importer and retail, picture frame maker, sign painter, publisher; active San Francisco 1865 - c. 1895.
Amos Currier and his partner, Daniel Winter, were proprietors of Currier and Winter in San Francisco from at least 1865 to 1875. The company was a combination sign painting and picture frame making shop, as well as an importer and retailer of photographs, ambrotypes, projector transparencies, engravings and lithographs. Around 1866, Currier and Winter published the Pacific Wash Book, Business Directory and Receipt Book. By 1869 the firm was located at 211 Kearny Street, where it remained until at least 1871. The Store served as a sales outlet for the work of Carleton Eugene Watkins during at least part of his 1871-74 tenure at 22 and 26 Montgomery Street.
Following the dissolution of the Currier and Winter partnership in 1875, Amos continued as a San Francisco "picture dealer" until at least 1895, By 1900 his occupation was listed as ädvertising."
