C. S. Cobb

1853                Rooms at Mr. H. Holland’s New Hotel, Woodsfield, Ohio.

C. S. Cobb was recorded in an advertisement that ran from June 8 to July 6, 1853 in The Spirit of Democracy (Woodsfield, Ohio). Daguerreotype Likenesses! For $1.50 Only.  C. S. Cobb would respectfully inform the citizens of Woodsfield, that he has taken rooms at Mr. H. Holland’s New Hotel, where he will be happy to see all who desire Correct Miniatures, of themselves or friends, according to the latest improvements in the Daguerrean art, in a style superior to any that have been taken in this place heretofore.  Also, particular attention will be given to taking copies of Portraits, Paintings, Pictures, &c.

“Secure the shadow ere the Substance fade,” and it will never change it rightly taken, but remain a true and faithful semblance of the original.

Any person sitting for a portrait, will not be expected to take it, unless they and their friends think it correct and satisfactory.  Call and see specimens.

On June 29, 1853 he was recorded in an announcement in The Spirit of Democracy (Woodsfield, Ohio).   Daguerreotypes.  Mr. C. S. Cobb is taking some splendid Daguerreotypes at the Holland House.  Those who are in want of good likenesses would do well to give him a call.  See his advertisement in another column.

C. S. Cobb is not recorded in any photographic directories that I have searched.
