From the “City Directory of Creston and Towns of Union County, Iowa, 1889”, a reference was found to “Healey A A, photographer, also of the firm of Healy & Davis.”  Another reference indicated that the building in which Healy & Davis was situated was on the east side of the Afton town square.  In April, 2004, the original buildings on the east side of the square were gone and metal building stood in their place.  These references were found in the Creston City Library.  Creston, Iowa is the county seat of Union County, Iowa.
