Grant

1846                Address Unknown, Union Village, New York.

Grant was recorded in an announcement as part of the partnership of Grant & Nixon on August 27, 1846 in the Washington County Journal (Union Village, New York).  Premium Daguerreotype Miniatures.  We take much pleasure in commending the Miniature Gallery of Messrs. Grant & Nixon to the attention of our citizens and the public generally.  They are located in the same building with ourself and in the room directly opposite our office, where they are daily producing some of the finest Pictures and most exact Likenesses we have ever seen.  Their Pictures are beautifully drawn out and possess a clearness, richness, life-like accuracy and brilliancy of finish we have rarely seen equaled and never surpassed! They have likenesses of several eminent public men and a great variety of splendid specimens in the Photographic Art.  Of course you will not take our word for all this, but call and see for yourselves—when, we are quite sure you will not fail to let the Operators give you a sitting of 20 or 30 seconds, just to see what a few glances of the sun beams can do.

Grant and or Nixon are not recorded in other photographic directories, it is possible that Grant is H. R. Grant, based on the activity dates and location in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry, but this is only speculation.
