Oliver H. Gilbert

1856                223 North Second Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[1]

Oliver H. Gilbert was recorded on April 1, 1856 in the Photographic and fine Arts Journal  (New York, New York).  In an article entitled the Photographic Galleries of America.  Number Two, Philadelphia. The author visited 57 Galleries in Philadelphia.           

Gilbert.—A tip top gallery. I was highly pleased with the specimens, and was surprised to find such a good artist among so many poor ones. Reimer, Marston, Newcome, and Gilbert, are too good artists for 2nd Street.

Oliver H. Gilbert is recorded in other photographic directories, but is recorded here because of the first hand account of his work.

[1] Not all first names or complete addresses were recorded in article.   Craig’s Daguerreian Registry was used to assist in identification when possible first name and address were added.
