Mr. Dewey

1842                Rooms at Mrs. Barney’s, Nantucket, Massachusetts.

Mr. Dewey is recorded in two advertisements that ran in the Nantucket Inquirer (Nantucket, Massachusetts).  The first advertisement ran on April 23, 1842.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  It will be seen by reference to our advertising columns that Mr. Dewey proposes to remain a few days with us for the purpose of taking miniatures by the striking and wonderful Daguerreotype process.  We have been permitted to examine some of Mr. D.’s specimens and do not hesitate to pronounce them, for their clearness, vividness and accuracy by far the best that we have ever seen.  We recommend those of our readers who wish for perfect fac-similies of their own physiognomies or those of their friends to give him a call.

The second advertisement ran on April 30, 1842.  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  Mr. Dewey is very successful in taking these “counterfeit presentments,” and has, we believe, given entire satisfaction to all who have called his skill in requisition.  His rooms are at Mrs. Barney’s.

Mr. Dewey is not recorded in other photographic directories.
