James Lawrence Breese (1854-1934) was a wealthy stockbroker and renowned amateur photographer with a spectacular country home in Southampton.  Supported by a fortune made in finance at his firm Breese & Smith,  his real passions were photography, art, automobiles, racing and architecture.

As seen on VanderbiltCupRaces.com, he participated in the Ormond-Daytona Automobile Races and was a commissioner on the first two Vanderbilt Cup Race Commissions (1904-1905).
