General Note:
The Burgerts were a family of photographers who came to Florida late in the nineteenth century and established a quite remarkable record in various phases of the photography business, primarily in the state. Three generations of Burgert photographers worked productively from around the 1870s until the 1960s. The Burgert brothers were six sons and one daughter-in-law of the original photographic progenitor of the family, Samuel Burgert.The brothers at various times took, sold or marketed supplies for hundreds of thousands of photographic images usually requested bycommercial clients, and in the process coincidentally documented the Tampa Bay region's development from the little more than a scrubby port village to a major urban center of international importance.
