The Kanton Appenzell is separated in two parts, a katolic and a protestant . The small city Appenzell ist the capital of the protes-tantic Kanton Appenzell Innerrhoden. The area was rural and most oft he inhabitants were small farmers. The income of this farmers was very small but at some special occasions like engagemant, wedding or tra-ditional parties they went to the photographer dressed in their traditional daily or Sunday costume.
The boom of the CdV was late in Appenzell and the first photographer was Sutter beginning of 1870. Some others opened later a studio but most of them closed it after some years. Müller & Sohn stayed over 20 years in Appenzell and he was the main photographer.
