Turck & Forshew, Artists, From Their long experience in the Daguerreotype business, and the late improvements and facilities they possess, can assure the public that their pictures are superior to all others taken in this section of the country and equal to any in the world.  Their pictures excel in richness of tone and transparency of shade, in which most of the Daguerreotypes taken by others are deficient.

They endeavor by the good quality of their pictures and the low prices to induce their customers to continue that patronage so liberally bestowed heretofore.

Having recently made improvements by which the time of sitting is reduced from one half to three fourths of the usual time, which entirely obviates the difficulty of taking children, and making it perfectly easy for all, and also giving a superior tone and finish to the picture.

Instructions given in the art, and all kinds of Daguerreotype Stock, and chemicals, kept constantly on hand and for sale.  J. Turck, F Forshew.      Nov. 1, ’50.
