On this day (July 19) in the year 1847, the following advertisements 
appeared in the "Newark Daily Advertiser" (Newark, New Jersey) Vol. 16, 
No. 170 (19 July 1847):

              P A R K ' S
PARK, at Room No. 4 Washington Hall, is now taking
Daguerreotypes enamelled with gold, a process which has
recently been discovered and used by all the principal Artists
in the country.  Pictures after being enamelled are warranted
never to fade.  He puts his pictures up in the best style, and
persons sitting for a picture at his room if not satisfied need
not take the picture.
   He will wait upon the citizens of Newark and vicinity at his
room, between the hours of 8 A.M., and 5 P.M.
   N.B.--Family groups taken and miniatures set in Lockets
in artistic style.

MISS PROSCH, an experienced Daguerrian Artist, from
New York, has by request of her patrons of Newark,
opened a Gallery in this city, and respectfully invites the La-
dies and Gentlemen of Newark and vicinity to give her an op-
portunity of displaying her skill.  Accuracy of likeness is guar-
anteed to every sitter.
   Pictures taken in various styles, and at the lowest rates at
which good pictures can be offered.  Please call and examine
   N.B.--Those having imperfect Likenesses can have them
re-taken in Miss Prosch's superior style, at trifling cost.

. . .and finally this ad, not for daguerreotypes, but by a fellow who 
two years later would be a daguerreotypist (in business at 98 Broadway, 
New York.)

N. C. JAQUITH is daily receiving new Spring and
Summer Goods, to which he would call the attention
of his customers and friends.  Thankful for past favors, and
hopes by strict attention to business to merit a share of their
patronage as heretofore bestowed.  It is not necessary to enu-
merate the stock in an advertisement, as our customers will
find all the different kinds of stiles of goods usually kept in a 
Dry Goods store, which will be sold for CASH ONLY at a 
saving to the buyer of 20 per cent on order prices.
