Mr. Barnes

Recorded the following notice on November 6, 1850 in the Lewisburg Chronicle (Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.)

Our fellow citizen Mr. Barnes is taking good Daguerreotype likenesses at the house opposite Gen. A. Green’s. “Encourage your own neighbors first.”

December 4, 1850 he advertises in the same paper. Daguerreotypes.  Mr. Barnes informs those who wish to have their Likenesses taken, or a picture of a departed friend copied, that his Daguerrean room, opposite Gen. Green’s, will be open on Saturdays from This week until the 1st of March.

His prices are moderate, and material good—all he asks therefore is a fair trial, after which if a picture does not please, no charge is made. The advertisement ran from December 4, 1850 to January 27, 1851.

Mr. Barnes does not appear in either Craig’s Daguerreian Registry or Pennsylvania Photographers, 1839-1900.
