Sarge Marsh's commercial instincts surfaced when, as a schoolboy photographer, he charged his neighbors $1 for portraits of their snow-covered houses. That humble beginning presaged his long career as Cincinnati's preeminent commercial photographer. It began with a makeshift darkroom in his family’s fruit cellar and by mid-century he was presiding over a small Fourth Street empire of thirty employees. He also kept his news photography origins, working for the Associated Press and Times World Photos, as well as shooting newsreels for Warner-Pathe and Fox Movietone. While all that was a story in itself, the real Sarge Marsh story was buried in the work, hidden until the abiding interest of art gallery owner Mike Wilger, who bought the Marsh negative collection a few years before Marsh's death in 2003 at the age of 87.
