                  245 Main-st.
        American Buildings.--Great Reduc-
                tion in Prices.
Pictures taken and put up in handsome Morrocco Cases
          F o r   O N E   D O L L A R !
Persons wishing to procure a perfect Miniature of themselves,
would do well to call immediately, as it is not likely they will ever
again have an opportunity of getting so perfect a likeness at the
same price. No pains will be spared that entire satisfaction may be
    CHILDREN'S LIKENESSES taken, in from 5 to 10 seconds;
which is about half the time occupied by common opperators.
    Miniatures taken and set in Lockets, Breastpins, Rings, &c.--I
have the best assortment of Gold and Plated Lockets ever offered
in Po'keepsie, and I can furnish them, with pictures, for about the
same price a Locket would cost elsewhere.
    Pictures taken in Cloudy as well as in Clear weather.
    N.B. My Pictures are warranted not to fade, being finished after
the same manner as Plumbes celebrated Pictures.   91
