G. F. Bissell was recorded in The Freeman’s Journal (Cooperstown, New York) in an advertisement that ran on September 23 & 30, 1859.
For Sale. An Ambrotype Car, nearly new, and in good repair, together with the apparatus and furniture. Instruction in the art given to the purchaser free. Terms of payment made easy. The above property will be sold cheap, and offers a rare chance for some enterprising young man wishing steady, easy and profitable employment. G. F. Bissell, Laurens, Sept. 19, 1859.
Bissell name is not recorded in other photographic directories. The possibility exist that Bissell is not a photographer that he is just selling the car, but the possibility also exist that he is selling the car and giving the instructions to whoever purchases the car.
