N. Benedict was recorded twice in the McGrawville Express (McGrawville, New York) on November 28, 1850. First in an announcement by the editors of the newspaper and second an advertisement which ran from November 28 to December 12, 1850.
We would call the attention of the public to the notice of Mr. N. Benedict’s Daguerrean Gallery in another column. One need only call and examine his specimens to be convinced that Mr. Benedict understands his business, and possesses the admirable, though difficult skill of bringing out the eye, without which, the picture is almost worthless.
Ladies and Gentlemen, call and gratify the eye by looking at pictures “as are pictures.”
Daguerreotypes. N. Benedict’s Daguerrean Gallery! Is now open one door East of McGraw & Green’s store, up stairs. The citizens of McGrawville and vicinity are respectfully invited to call and examine his specimens. Likenesses taken in all weather, from 8 o’clock A. M. to 4 o’clock P. M.
While there are other Benedict’s recorded in other photographic directories no connection can be made to connect them with N. Benedict at this time.
