H.R.Niebel, Photographer

I am trying to date some old photographs of Family Members taken by H.R.Niebel, of ORILLIA, Ontario, Canada.
The oldest of them, on a paperboard hard back, is die-stamped NIEBEL or H.R.NIEBEL, and I would place them as 1890-1900.
Also have a 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" snapshot, which from the people
(known) in the picture, I would date about 1920-21. On the reverse, stamped by rubber-stamp, in script handwriting, is
H.R.Niebel, Photographer, Orillia, Ontario.
Anyone know the years that Niebel was in business in Orillia ? His address, perhaps, and what may have happened to the business ?
What I am hoping to accomplish is to date the older portrait pictures, and to ultimately determine WHO , among the Family , that they may be ???
It is a long shot - but most Genealogical Quests are !!!!
