Henry Carty

1852                Captain Hines’ New Building Fayetteville, Tennessee.

Henry Carty was recorded in an advertisement that ran from May 27 to June 3, 1852 in the Fayetteville Observer (Fayetteville, Tennessee.)

  Daguerreotype Miniature!                                                                                                      “Old time sweeps on with icy breath,                                                                                      To chill the sweetest flower in death;                                                                                     Secure its form—let beauty bloom;                                                                                         Its truths shall live above the tomb.”

I have opened a room in Capt. Hines’ New Building, the one occupied by Mr. Hughes during his stay in Fayetteville, for the purpose of taking Daguerreotype Likenesses; where all are invited to call and see my Pictures whether they sit for a Likeness or not.  Daguerreotypes put up in Lockets, Breast Pins and Fancy Cases.  I have the Papier Mache, Kate Hays and Gold Matted or Kossuth, and plain Cases.  Entire satisfaction given or no charge.  To the Ladies I promise to make their pictures beautiful without flattering them.   Henry Carty, Operator.

An announcement ran on June 10, 1852 in the same paper.   Daguerreotypes—We have neglected to call attention to the fact, that an opportunity is now offered to all desiring an accurate type of their pretty or ugly features, by calling at Mr. Henry Carty’s Daguerrean room in Hines’ new building.

Henry Carty does not appear in other photographic directories.
