             Daguerrotypes in Glass.
                      ____

The Subscriber, having obtained the right for Mont-
pelier and vicinity is now prepared to take these
newly invented, beautiful and never changing pictures
in glass, which are altogether superior in beauty and
durability to either Daguerreotypes or Photographs, at
his Daguerrean Stand, over
         Ellis & Bancroft's Store State St.,
                  MONTPELIER, VT.
  The Ambrotype is taken upon the best Plate Glass,
and will resist the action of the elements, and retain
its brilliancy for ages.
  Daguerreotypes can be copied in this permanent and
beautiful style and enlarged to any size.

Prices varying from $2,00 to 15,00

  Please call and examine specimens, at his new, am-
ple and well furnished suit of rooms, which are not
equalled in any similar establishment out of the large
cities.                                 S. O. HERSEY.
