W. A. Bigelow appeared in the Worcester Daily Spy (Worcester, Massachusetts) in an advertisement on November 12 to 17, 1855. Daguerreotypes From 25 Cts. To $10.00. W. A. Bigelow & Co. Would respectfully inform the public that they are now taking Daguerreotypes by the quick camera, which enables them to take Pictures of children in the most perfect manner in three or four seconds, where as they would have to sit from thirty to forty seconds by the old process. This is the only instrument of the kind in the city. Rooms 227 Main st., opposite the Worcester House, up one flight of stairs,—this is another advantage over other rooms in the city. Copying done in the neatest manner. Pictures of sick or deceased persons taken at their residences. Remember 227 Main st., Worcester.
W. A. Bigelow was not recorded in A Directory of Massachusetts Photographers, 1839-1900.
