The Daguerreian Society


Today I have two 19th century announcements and a "hot-off-the-press"
announcement for The Daguerreian Society.

On this day (November 5) in the year 1853, the following two advertisements
appeared in "Illustrated News" (New York; Vol. II. No. 45):

T A N N E R ' S  ( LATE THOMPSON'S )
DAGUERREAN GALLERY, No. 315 BROADWAY.--
This establishment is now open for the reception of Visitors.  The im-
provements recently effected in the Gallery, which compelled the sus-
pension of business for a brief period, have been completed on a scale
commensurate with the present advanced state of the Daguerrean art
and the requirements of a discriminating public.  The result is that
the Pictures which we now issue present such a combination of
beauties, that the wonder is how they can be done so cheaply.  The
inspection of the Public is respectfully solicited.  The Ladies will
find our Gallery especially convenient, having private toilet rooms
attached and a lady in attendance.
   Two distinct and separate skylight rooms, with polite and attentive
operators ready to receive visitors.  Call and judge for yourselves.

M E Z Z O G R A P H S, or,  D A G U R R E O -
TYPES ON PAPER.-- Particular attention is called to this
new feature in the Daguerrian art, now taken at GURNEY's mag-
nificient Daguerreotype Gallery, No. 34 Broadway.  Also, his new
style of Colored Daguerreotypes, which attract so much attention.
