H. M. Bowman

1858                Main Street, Opposite the Ellicott House, Hillsboro, Ohio.

H. M. Bowman was recorded in a notice and advertisement in The Highland Weekly News (Hillsboro, Ohio.) on December 9, 1858.  We call the attention to the Card of Mr. Bowman, Daguerreotypist, who has recently opened here in the room formerly occupied by his brother.  We have seen some first-rate specimens of Mr. Bowman’s skill as an artist, and have no doubt he will render satisfaction to all who patronize him.

The advertisement.  Look This Way!  All who desire Superior Pictures will do well to go to Bowman’s Gallery, Opposite the Ellicott House, Main Street, Hillsboro, O., Mr. Bowman is an Operator of great skill and experience, and positively does take the Very Best of all the different kinds of Pictures, From Ten To  Thirty Per Cent, Lower than can be had elsewhere in Hillsboro.  Call and see.  H. M. Bowman.

H. M. Bowman is listed in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry in 1860-1861 on the East side of the Public Square, Greensburg, Indiana.  It is unknown if they are the same person.
