E. F. Boyd

1859                Address Unknown, Jackson, Mississippi.

E. F. Boyd was recorded in the Memphis Daily Appeal (Memphis, Tennessee.) on December 24 & 25, 1859.  Daguerrean Gallery For Sale.—The undersigned wishing to engage in different business, offers his gallery for sale in Jackson Mississippi.  It is the oldest and the best in the city, and commands a business of $3000 a year—expenses light.  For particulars address immediately,  E. F. Boyd, Jackson, Miss.

Even though the advertisement appeared in the Memphis, Tennessee newspaper it is possible that the gallery is in Jackson, Mississippi, a distance of over 200 miles.  Boyd does not appear in other photographic directories.
