J. L. Bartholomee was recorded in The Opelousas Patriot (Opelousas, Louisiana) on October 18, 1856. The advertisement ran from October 18, 1856 to January 3, 1857.
New Style Of Likenesses!—Ambrotypes! Daguerreotypes Superseded! There is a softness and brilliancy in this new style of Picture which has never been obtained in the old Daguerreotype process.
Persons wishing to see this new style of Picture are invited to call at the rooms of J. L. Bartholomee, Opelousas Varieties.
J. L. Bartholomee is previously unrecorded in photographic directories and histories that I have checked.
