1848                41 Orange Street, Nantucket, Massachusetts.

Gorham was recorded as part of the partnership of Maxham & Gorham in an announcement on  July 15, 1848 in the Nantucket Inquirer (Nantucket, Massachusetts).  Daguerreotype Miniatures.  Those wishing Likenesses of themselves or friends, can procure them, of any shade or color desired, at Maxham & Gorham’s.  41 Orange Street.

Gorham is not recorded in Directory of Massachusetts Photographers 1839-1900 or other photographic directories.  It is possible that Maxham is Benjamin D. who was active in 1848 in Dover, New Hampshire. And latter in Worcester, Massachusetts, but that is only speculation on my part no proof as be found to substantiate this claim.
