                             BRADY'S
                 C A R D  T O  T H E  P U B L I C
        A NEW FEATURE IN DAGUERREOTYPES HAS RECENTLY BEEN
                       INTRODUCED BY BRADY,
                        AT HIS OLD GALLERY,
              205 BROADWAY, CORNER OF FULTON STREET.

   The extent of his Establishment enables him to produce for 50 cents, 
and $1, pictures of a quality infinitely superior to the phantoms 
usually designated cheap pictures.  This is a new feature in first-class 
establishments, and the fame of the artist is too well known to doubt 
its success.  The public can now rely on obtaining as good a picture for 
that price as can possibly be put up, and a far better picture than can 
be obtained elsewhere at the same rates.  Brady's New Gallery, 359 
Broadway, over Thompson's Saloon, is fitted up with great taste and 
beauty, and possesses greater facilities for the production of first-
class portraits than any similiar establishment in this country.  These 
Galleries form an elegant resort for persons of taste--containing as 
they do the largest collection of distinguished portraits in America.  
Prize Medals were AWARDED to Brady at the Word's Fair in London, 1851, 
and at the Crystal Palace, New York, 1853.
