Robert E. Burns

1856                365 Eighth Avenue, New York, New York.[1]

Recorded in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal (New York, New York) on January 1, 1856 In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number One, New York. The author visited 69 Galleries in New York City.

Burns — I noticed some very poor pictures in this gallery, although I have seen worse.

As before Robert E. Burns is known I include him her because it is a contemporary writing about his photographs.
